    APPLY PARK BRAKE, jack up right front only, start engine & shift into drive, let that wheel spin up then apply service brake, is noise still there? If so remove wheel and reinstall a couple of lug nuts & tighten. Repeat test while a HELPER looks for source of noise. DO NOT LEAVE DRIVERS SEAT WHILE TESTING!! Turn off engine and stop wheel rotation before putting shifter in PARK! If any doubt about doing this test, seek a mecanic!
