2005 Chevy cavalier .It has a bad grinding type vibration while driving straight or turning right.When turning left the vibration goes away. Any thoughts on this? I suspect right front wheel bearing Jeff L Milw
hi
i would think it is the left fron wheel bearing,,,the reason i think it is the left,is because you say it gets quiet when turning left..it does this because when turning left it shifts the weight of the car to the right,taking the weight of the car off of the bad left wheel bearing,,when turning right,it puts the weight on the left
thanks
