ROAR

2007 Suzuki XL7 • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 110 miles

What can cause a roar ( starts about 10 mph and gets louder the faster you go ) in the front end of 2007 suzuki XL7 (110 k miles )?
It did same noise after front end collision 3 yrs ago, insurance repaired but gave no detail.

It sounds like a bad front wheel bearing the best way to check that is block the rear wheels on a level surface set the ebrake jack up the front wheels so they are both off thr ground put the front end on jack stands. Then put it in neutral then put one hand on a coil spring then turn the tire with the other hand as fast as you can. If the bearing is bad you should be able to feel it in coil spring. Check both sides and compare them to each other.
