Can you jack the front up and see if the wheels will wiggle in and out?

If it do then what?
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 8 months ago

It sounds like you have a bad hub bearing in the front. If either or both wheels will wiggle in and out then that is where the bad bearing is.

I jacked up front end. No loose movement in front wheels.
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 7 months ago

Did you try moving the top of the tire in and out?

Can you spin the front wheels and see if you can hear any whining noises?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I didn't hear any squeaking or grinding noise
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 7 months ago

I hate to replace parts that i can not prove are bad, but from what you have told me the right hub bearing has to be where the noise is coming from that you hear.

I'll probably take the wheels off and inspect them anyway. Maybe I can find something obvious
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 7 months ago

Look at the top edges of the rotor front and back and see if the brake pads are hitting funny, or the rotor is hitting the caliper bracket. If it is, then the bearing is bad.
