everytime i turn to the left. i hear this deep groan sound in my passager wheel. i can hear it if the steering wheel is tilted to the left and im going over 60MPH. sometimes, when i brake, the steering will shake a lot.

A long time ago during winter, my dumbass mind wanted to go drifting in the small roads. i came in a lil too hot and hit the curb straight on. Bent both of my right side wheels.

Now could this be my hub assembly? cause of the left turn groan

rotors are bad? cause of the high MPH braking and steering wheel shaking or vibrating

please help. i just wanna make sure cause i hate seeing my balt like this

If the groaning only happens when you turn left I agree that it could be a bearing. You should be able to check them yourself if they are pretty far gone…

How to Check Wheel Bearings | eHow.com

As for the shaking while braking… do you feel the vibration through the pedal too? If you do it might be the rotors. But shaking can be caused by a million things, lol. Otherwise on a whim check your tires for cupping or check your rims to see if they are out-of-round. I have a cupped tire on my car and the steering wheel shakes a little when I brake. Good luck!

i think it just need to be aligned, cause today, i removed my rotor and its not warped. Ball joints are fine. Cv axle is fine. Wheel bearing, not sure yet, ill find out tommrow if my teacher lets me bring it in. Now that i narrow it down, its either.....
1. Wheel Bearing Assembly
or
2. Need of alignment
or
3. Tire Needs to be balanced but i doubt this is it cause my wheel is fine but ill take a look
