JACK UP LEFT FRONT, START ENGINE AND PUT TRANS. IN DRIVE, WHILE SOMEONE LISTENS ACCELERATE TO ABOUT 40 MPH THEN DO THE SAME ON RIGHT FRONT! YEA I KNOW SOUNDS CRAZY BUT DO IT ANYWAY. IF THAT DON'T SHOW ANYTHING ROTATE TIRES. IF THAT DON'T HELP THEN TAKE IT TO A MECHANIC THAT CAN LOOK AT IT. I JUST NOW SAW ANSWER #2 AND IT'S RIGHT THUS THE REASON FOR CHECKING BOTH BEARINGS!

thanks, I was thinking about taking the bearing I had on the left front and putting it on the right side seeing that the problem is still there

a lot of times it sounds like one side making the noise but is actually the other side

It is funny that seems to go against everything I was taught about bearings. I sure will give it a shot after all what do I have to loose. She supposedly banged a curb with the right front when she was parking one day.
