Unhappy Need Some Help

I have a 2006 Chevy Equinox, in which on the passenger front I have replaced the rotor, brakes, ABS senor, and calipar. How ever something on that side is making a roaring sound when I'm driving and it gets real hot and also when I'm coming to a slow stop the brakes bounce back a little and then it makes a clicking sound. I've only had this SUV for 1 year. Can someone please help me?

I'm wondering if you have any play in the hub/bearing assembly.
Have you had the front end inspected /aligned at all, checked ball joints/ rod ends etc?
With that wheel off the ground, grab tire and try to see if there is any play while push pull at 12 & 6 and 9 and 3 positions.

Clicking often relates to cv shaft though...hmm..
You may want to get it on a lift run it and inspect it!
I used an auto stethoscope on mine and passenger bearing was on it'* way out, load hum noises.

Typical wheel bearing noise is this.......

Driving straight ahead, the noise will get louder the faster you go, usually topping off at 40 mph.....now, safely turn your steering wheel slightly left and then slightly right.....if the noise gets louder while turning in one direction, and quiets down while turning in the opposite direction, that is an indicator of a bad bearing......

Some bearings have no play in them, and still make noise...Like Soft Ride suggests, the best way to find a bad bearing is with a vehicle on a lift, and the vehicle is in drive with the front wheels spinning, and listening to each side to determine which bearing is causing the problem....

Many times techs have taken a road test, and just by listening, they think they know what side is making the noise(sometimes it sounds like one side, and it'* the other).....or they just check for play and condemn the one with the play......next thing you know, they tell the customer, BOTH are bad, because they misdiagnosed the problem, and you end up buying a bearing you didn't need....the mechanic'* stethescope method is a sure fire way of finding a bad bearing....

as stated by techII, (if doing this at home) you need to test bearings, but suspension needs to be supported while doing this or you can ruin the drive shaft or seals. I put mine on jack stands (wheels off ground about 2 inches)and test each side, with vehicle running and in gear, stop one wheel, other will spin freely, listen for noise, release wheel and do same for other side, while someone runs vehicle from drivers seat. I have seen both front bearings gone at the same time, one may make more noise so you don't hear the other until one is changed.
