I have a 2001 Chevy Blazer, 58,000 mi, 4.3 L 4x4. At speeds over 40 mph there is a vibration and noise coming from the front left wheel area. It's cyclical in nature, in that, as the speed increases, the frequency of the vibration/sound increases as well. Any thoughts?
Do you
have the same problem?

I would check the tire first, then the rim, next the bearing and cv joint. Do you have oversized tires on the s-10?

With it happening in one wheel, I would have that wheel checked in case it lost a weight. Check the cv joint and the bearings. Jack up the front end. With the wheel off the ground turn it and move it back and forth and up and down. You will feel if there is free play. With the bearings, lightly touch the spring and rotate the tire. You can feel if the bearing is hanging up.
