Question about 1993 Ford Probe
Whoa! You have what sounds like a serious front end problem. Jack up the car, use safety stands to support it, block the rear wheels front and back. Look behind the left front wheel, look at the axle boot . Do you see any rips, splits, or grease ? The boot may have torn, letting in road debris which will destroy the axle, causing it to make a rattle or rubbing noise when you turn.. If the boot looks ok all around, grab hold of the tire one hand on the top, one on the bottom, push and pull the tire in opposite directions (top in, bottom out, top in bottom out) and have some one look under the car in the area behind the wheel to see if anything is moving around. Do the same w/ one hand on front of tire (9 oclock position) and back of tire (3 oclock position), and again try to force the wheel in and out, while someone looks underneath for any component that moves around. If the front end is ok, you won't see any movement. You may have a badly worn tie rod or ball joint, this could also cause the car to wander on the highway. Check it asap, as the next step is for something to 'let go' and you can lose control of the car. Let me know what u find. good luck countrycurt0

You most likely have bad wheel bearings, as indicated by the slow-speed noise. Jack up the car, grab the top and bottom of the tire and see if you can wiggle it vertically -- if so your bearings are bad.
