Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1997 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 141000 miles

my pass. Side cv boot is wide open(needs replaced). I put new rotors, pads(both sides). Lower control arm and ball joint on driver side. Since then I have a hum that neither decreases or increases with vehicle speed. Also, the hum stops if I turn to the right and remains constant if I turn to the left.

Do you
have the same problem?

You'll find that the left front has the bearing problem, So it looks like both sides need work again. CV joint will click when enough grease is lost, and enough dirt packs into it.
