Hearing a grinding noise from the front passenger side wheel area. It happens when I turn to the right only but not when I turn left. When it's cold I hear it louder but when it's warm it's a little quieter can't figure out what it is.i know it's now my tire rubbing the fenders. I know it's not my rotors cause it's not when I brake just when I'm slowly turning right. Does any one know what it could be or have this happen to them?

Yeah - the wheel hub and wheel bearing come as an assembly.

Most likely, jack it up and give everything a shake, see what moves that shouldn't but if it's a grinding noise it's usually brakes or bearings

It'd also make noise at high speed and get louder turning one way when it's under load and the other way it's quieter when less load is on it.

Be thankful it's a bolt on and not a press in and come as just the bearing.

I would much rather have just the bearing haha so much cheaper and you can just repack them every now and then..... can be quite messy though....

Really you're crazy, and $60 for an off brand $110 for Timken isn't really too bad

I hear at all speeds just not as loud I guess since I hear more exhaust lol

Haha maybe it comes down to the fact that my dad paid 30 bucks to do both sides in his truck at the same time I paid like 180 to do them on my durango..... it really isn't difficult to do once you have done them once or twice...

Friend is putting a lift in his heated garage in a month, we're breaking it in by doing an engine swap.
