2002 Pontiac Grand Prix Automatic 55000 miles

ROARING SOUND THROUGHOUT CAR.I THINK ITS THE LEFT BEARING BECAUSE WHEN I TURN RT. IT GOES AWAY, OR IS IT THE RT. SIDE, OR SOMETHING ELSE. ALSO DO I NEED TO BLEED BRAKES IF I JUST DO PADS AND ROTORS?

Raise car put on stands, grasp wheel and push/pull both horizontally and vertically. Any movement would indicate bearings, ball joint, tie rod or control arm bushing.

No you do not have to bleed brakes if you just change pads/rotors.

Most GM cars use hub assemblies, 3 or 4 bolts hold bearing to knuckle.
