HELP !! Wheel bearing ? half shaft ? noise at 40 mph gearheads needed
Ok 99 Park Ave 200k miles. AT 40 mph you hear a noise that seems to be from the left front wheel kinda like a wap,wap , wap well you get the idea its not a constant growl or squeel more like a slow barking dog,lol
It did seem to worsen on a hard right turn so I assumed left wheel bearing, bought a new one for 60.00 installed, guess what, Yup still there. No ripped boots on the half shafts, no popping sounds etc... Rotors and pads are fine. I tried jacking up that side and putting it in gear but cant duplicate the sound.
So... what could this be...
Shold i keep driving it and see if it gets worse ??
I was going to chg out the other 3 wheel bearings due to mileage but why do that if they are quiet right ???
