FRONT WHEEL BEARING TO BE REPLACED

2002 Pontiac Montana • 260,000 miles

I put my Pontiac Montana on Axle Jacks to determine which wheel bearing needs replacing But am unable to hear which side needs replacing. How do I determine this without randomly choosing a side and risk being wrong. Front wheel bearing to be replaced. Not sure which one.

If it's safely supported, listen next to each one underneath with a stethoscope while running it in gear. One will be questionable, but then the other one will be obvious by the rumbling noise.
