A sharp left turn (when you say the noise goes away) takes pressure off the driver side bearing. I suspect your new bearing is defective. What brand is it and where did you buy it? If the new control arm does not fix the problem, you might want to try switching the front hubs from side side (yes, I know its a lot of work) to see if the noise moves. If you switch the hubs and they get stuck again, take a look at this write up and see how you can fabricate a jack screw to easily remove the hubs. I don't know if this would work on your car, but if it does it eliminates the need for the big persuader.

I got some pretty good news for the most part. I replaced the passenger side control arm and when I was putting everything back together I noticed that the rear seal of the hub had failed and there was grease leaking from the hub so I warrantied it out and after all said and done I got it back together I went over and checked the driver side hub and it had a lot of 12 to 6 movement, but the axle nut worked itself lose and I tightened it up to 185 foot pounds and the movement went away but it does have a little bit of a hum coming from it so I am going to half to replace that hub here shortly. They are the Duralast brand for AutoZone. I am betting it that axle nut comes lose again on the driver side I am betting I will need to replace that axle. An I right on that or not?

On further inspection I am going to half replace the CV Axel itself because I really did a number on the threads. They are in pretty bad shape and I am afraid that if I remove the axle nut to replace the hub that I won't be able to get the bolt back on pass the missing threads on the CV Axle. There is a small section of threads that are missing on the half shaft so I will half to wait till I get a new axle before I can continue. So how make the better CV Axles Auto Zone or O'Reillys?

Well I took it over to a good friend of mine and he looked at the axle and said with the missing threads that it is to risky to try to remove the axle nut do to the missing threads so I will need to replace the axle but since I already knew I needed to replace them do to worn outer boots on both front axles. After 16 years the rubber is starting to break and crumble on the outer boots on both half shafts plus the car does have almost 90K on it.

I could tell from your description of the nloise you were hearing something was wrong with the driver side hub. Sorry to to hear you have to spend more money, but glad you found the problem. If you can wait two to three days for delivery, take a look on-line at rockauto.com. We have a thread on the forum that provides a code for a 5% discount if you go that route. https://www.gmforum.com/general-gm-c...t-code-279335/

The Control Arm was under Dorman'* lifetime warranty from Rock Auto and the Hubs are still under warranty threw Auto Zone. So all I need to get is an RMA # so I can ship the bent control arm back so I can get my money back on it. So all in all I am out very little money in the long run. It'* just taking a lot of mine time to get the problems squared away. Next month I am replacing the struts in the car along with getting a set of new tires for the front along with doing a fluid and filter change on the transmission.

Also thanks for the discount from Rock Auto. I will use the refunded money I will be getting back after I send the control arm back to purchase a half shaft for the driver side of the car.
