Wheel Bearing replacement on 2003 Dodge Durango

I am getting a noise that sounds like a prop plane engine when I turn the steering wheel to the right after going about 20mph or more.When I turn to the left no noise and when going straight there is slight noise. No vibrations in the steering wheel. I checked the the wheels and the left side wiggles some when I shook it. The right side (passenger) is not as loose. Is it the wheel bearing on the right side?

On a right turns at speed the weight transfer is to the right it is that bearing that is under load and will make noise if it is bad. I think that is a hub and bearing assembly.

If the threads strip where the front brake caliper mounts to the steering knuckle, a steering knuckle repair kit is available. A new steering knuckle is not normally necessary.
