I just tried that and when I turn one wheel by hand, the other wheel doesn't turn at all. The same result for both sides.
On the passenger side, I took off the rim to find out why I started having a grinding noise. The shield with that holds the ABS plug had been scraping, but I still took the brake pads off anyways to check them better. After I put the brake pads back in, without the brakes against the rotor with the tire on and bolted down, it felt like the wheel hub was moving when I shook the tire. I'm starting to think the wheel hub went bad again.
I also checked the control arm bushings and they looked ok. I check the strut rod bushings. The passenger side was ok, but the driver side looks bad. Funny thing is that side feels ok and doesn't have any sound. The other day, I was turning real sharp backing up and the passenger made one pop sound, which might have been the outer tie rod.
I'll probably wait till next weekend and change the passenger outer tie rod again, both control arm bushings, both strut rod bushings, and maybe the balljoint and outer tie rod on the driver side for good measure.
