It sounds like tires rouring but it just started
JA: How old are the tires? And have they been a problem in the past?
Customer: Pretty new no problem
JA: What is the model/year of your Chevy?
Customer: 03 z71 ls
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: It just started a week ago ,ya I always fix my own ,I was going to start with the two front wheel bearing hubs
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: All I can think of

The first thing you should do would be to jack up each of the front wheels and see if you can move the top of the tire in and out with one hand at 6 oclock, and the other at 12. See if the wheel will rock. If it does, that wheel bearing will need to be serviced. If it is ok, check the other side. If both of the front feel good and tight, jack up the rear and see if you still get a roar with both back wheels off of the ground, truck in 2wd hi, and the truck running in 1st gear with the engine idleing.

This way you can tell for sure what is going on and where you need to start looking for a problem.

Did you jack up the rear and listen for a roar from the rear?

No it sounds like its fousure the front thou

Before you replace the font bearings, double check the torque on the center nut. If the nut is not tight enough it can cause bearings to fail.
