Default Weird frontend noise

Ok--after I changed my passenger side cv joint(see other post)due to a strange noise/vibration--I still have the noise/vibration. Seems to be coming from the driver side spindle area--maybe--I feel like a grinding(like 2 bearings rubbing together) noise under my feet when I'm driving. There'* no set pattern to it--I can make a left/right turn or go straight and you won't hear/feel it--but sometimes driving straight or sometimes taking a curve or turn you'll feel/hear it. Someone said it might be the bearings in the spindle. Does this sound like it might be the problem? Is it an expensive job--whole spindle replacement or can the bearings be swapped out? Anyone recommenda used part? Looks like I'm gonna have to bite the bullet on this one and pay someone to do it!
Will I cause alot of damage if I drove it like this til Saturday?
Thanks for any help.

You talking about the bearing/hub assembly? If you are, there'* a few here that have changed their own. They run about $130 apiece.....not sure about gmpartsdirect.com, might be cheaper.

Sounds like a Front ABS Wheel Hub Bearing Assembly all right!

It'* going already, who cares if you kill a bad part? Just keep a feel out for hub temps....feel the wheel after driving. As long as it doesn't get too hot, or you feel the brakes fading from the heat, drive it.

ok-cool. I just didn't want to score or damage the threads to the cv joint.
I'm glad I can drive it--if not I had to drive my Monte SS--which kills me on gas!
