The suggestion is to fix the wheel bearings. Wouldn't the noise have been there before if it was the bearings ?

2004 Toyota Sequoia Question: I now have a thumping noise in the front after having the tires rotated.

Have them check for uneven tire wear maybe a flat spot or cupping. since the tires were on the rear prior to service u wouldn't have noticed the thump. Are you having any vibrations in the steering wheel?& if so does it get worst at acceleration?

Thanks ! There are no vibrations in the steering. It seems logical to be the tire itself.
