Humming while I drive and now there is a grinding, screaching noise coming front the front wheel. I check the brakes and they are fine. The steeering shakes when pressing on the brakes.

    steering shakes from warped rotors. they need to be replaced.

    the bearing is more involved. the spindle has to be removed and the bearing pressed.
