My 2011 Camry has an intermittent growl or howl noise that I can hear at any speed above about 30mph but it does come and go sometimes very loud sometimes a bit quieter, and other times I cannot hear it at all but it is present on each drive. I also noticed the front driver's side wheel looks like it is wearing differently than the other three and there is one semi-loud click when I turn the wheel all the way to one side while driving such as when taking a sharp turn. Any idea what this is?
