Thanks for your question. Sorry you're having car problems. If I go off line, just leave a message and I'll be right back. DO NOT leave feedback yet. This sounds like an axle bearing going bad. I'm assuming you switched it to neutral while driving down the road to see if it made a difference? Let me know. Thanks, Ron

YES WE SWITCHED TO NEUTRAL AN IT MADE NO DIFF
ALSO TURNING FROM SIDE TO SIDE DOESN'T CHANGE IT EITHER
OK, then the axle bearing needs to be looked at. Don't let this go too long because it can be dangerous if it let's go. Ron
YOU MEAN THE WHEEL BEARING
That's correct, all in the same area. Ron
COULD IT BE TH WHEEL BEARING JUST STARTING TO GO
Sure can, just don't want it to go out completely on you while you're out driving it.
THATS WHAT WE THOUGHT
Thanks for your question, and please don't forget to rate me as high as you feel is right. Ron
