CHEVY ROAD NOISE, BUT NOT FROM TIRES

2006 Chevrolet Equinox

Noises problem
2006 Chevy Equinox 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

06 Equinox.
Loud front end noise started recently that I thought was caused by snow tire " road noise". Sounded like simple road noise, but really loud as you go past 80km/h.

Put new summer tires on but the sound remains and gets louder as you
increase speed above 100km/h.

Noise seems to be in front of driver position.

Ideas?

Thank you!

Sounds like a bad front wheel bearing. If u put the front end on jack stands set the parking brake and block the rear wheels. Put the shifter in neautral then put one hand on ur front coil spring and spin the tire as fast u can if u have a bad bearing u should be able to feel it in the spring. Check both sides so u can feel the difference between the two. Let me know what u find.
