Just bought privately guy said he just put new breaks and rotors on 400 dollars so thought front was looked at. Hmmm.

Noise in the front -soft roaring sort of noise on highway. Driving straight.(Not driving it until it is all diagnosed)

Parkinglot test. Tight right turns sound okay in all auto 4h 4l positions. Tight left turn hopping seemed noisy clunking type, noise on sand too-I have tinitus so it is hard to explain but noise from right front.

Other issues. Serpentine belt is in need of change. Don't know if all the recalls were done on it. Powersteering makes a soft howling, steering a bit stiff when driving in parking lot. Not the heavy duty whinning sound.

Thanks for your help!
