Default Can anyone identify this sound? (I even made a video!)

My car has been making an annoying noise now for about 6 months, and I've decided that I'm going to do something about it.

I know it'* not the tire balance; it has done it with my summer performance tires AND my studded winter tires. (All of which were balanced to 0/0)

The steering wheel doesn't shake, so I don't *think* it'* alignment.

All of the engine lights are for a bad speed sensor, passenger side (front). Could a bad wheel bearing/speed sensor be the source of the noise?

Everything is stock besides the air intake.

Note: You'll probably have to turn it up, my camera had a hard time recording the sound. It'* like a slow-vibration noise. "whom-whom-whom-whom-whom"

That'* what I was thinking too.

Also..On ZZP, they have a hub for like 70 bucks, while NAPA+my dealership are both charging $200 or so (just for the hub).

Is there a big difference in quality, or are NAPA+my dealership just a rip off?

Nothing wrong with the Delco ones

Timken are better, but more $$$

Sounds like a bearing to me as well..

For what it is worth if you have the extra do them both, and save up for the rears

Hrm...

Well, on RockAuto, the Delco ones START at like $200.. Damn you, W-Body.
So the Timken ones must be like $250 or something?

Anyone have any experience with the ZZP hub? I mean, for $70, that'* a hell of a deal.
