What if you have already replaced the left fr wheel bearing with a new one, still had the noise, went and got another new bearing, thinking the first one was bad, and put in the 2nd new one, and STILL had the same growling noise? Thats what I have going on. I have done autobody repair for 20 years.
I hand torqued the alxe nut, and can't think of why this is still growling at me, unless the CV Joint is bad.
It will make a slighty louder growl while turning left, and almost go away in a right turn. But going straight, its enough to drive you batty at highway speeds. The Bearing I took out was SHOT! And came out of the knuckle in 2 pieces, So I was SURE that was the problem. Now I'm thinkin its got to be the driver side alxe, of something in the tranny, as it Really seems to be from the left front, and not the right bearing going also. Unless sound REALLY travels thru the cradle that bad! ANY IDEAS before I snatch my self bald?
