Default getting grinding noise..

im getting a grinding noise when i go less than 30mph from the passanger front side wheel.

sometimes when i turn i get the singing like its a loose wheel bearing..
but will a loose wheel bearing also cause grinding noise at low speeds.

kinda sounds like my caliper is hitting my rims..(brings back memories)

but i jacked up the car and had a look and everything seems AOK
just dust from the pads is all i see.. no damage on anything.
i get a bit of wheel play when i shake the wheel.. but its the tiniest littles ammount.

any suggestions?.

thanks guys.

Yes...a bad hub bearing can cause a grinding noise at low speeds. Mine did it between about 8-25 MPH....went away abouve 25 mph and did not make the noise during turns. I thought for sure it was a ball joint. Jacked up the car and put it on stands. Did the 6/12 and 9/3 test on each wheel. From underneath, you could see the slop/play in the hub when rocking the wheel (and yes, the play was very minor)

Repalced the hub and I was good to go. Not saying this is your problem, but it is definitely a possibility.

hey thanks a bunch...

i just wanted some second advise before taking action.

i saw the write up on replacing the hub,
im missing some tools, so i guess
im either gonna have to buy them or take it to the mechanic..
im gonna take this chance to also install new shocks, and heavy duty endlinks.

thanks.
