Sounds like something in the driveline. if wheel bearings are good it could be brake caliper making contact with rotor, axle bearings , or the transmission may be failing. if it does it worse in 1st gear then its more likely to be a transmission problem. check both sides though. often noise and vibration can travel from one side to the other. also check your tires for knots or cuts, flat spots or heavy brake dust on the wheel. tell me what you find. hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2001 monte carlo ss. Rear wheel bearings making a grinding noise

It is pretty easy, there is not much labor involved if it has anti-lock brakes in the rear you will also have to un-plug the wire harness attached to hubs.

If it sounds like a rumble from back wheels it may be the rear end going out. Mine has been replaced twice with used rear end. You should be able to confirm it by looking at the rear tires both sides of tire for an oil leak or wet spot on tire or rim.

SOURCE: 01 impala can a bad front hub bearing cause the

Yes it can if the hub has lot's of play but you will have drive issues first. Check the ABS sensor for broken wire, dirt, and the gap to the speed ring on the hub. You can clean the the ABS sensor with brake parts cleaner with out removing it, just a good spray should to the trick and check the gap from the sensor to the speed ring. You can use a dime as a reference for the gap to make sure you have the right gap and make sure the ABS wire harness is not damages in any way. Good luck and hope this helps, also check the fuse to the ABS system. If there is a Auto Zone have the can scanned since it's fee of charge just to make sure it's not the ABS module that has gone bad.

Undue pressure on the hub bearings on a 1997 Cavalier

ok so I have a 97 chevy Cavaliar convertable. And when I first got it, it was making a grinding sound when ever I drove it. the sound seemed to be coming from the passanger front tire and when I would turn right the sound was still there but when I turned left the sound would go away during the turn. Well naturally I thought the bearing was going out on the side. so I bought a new one it came pre lubed and put together, in the box was also a spacer it just looked like a metal disc. well when I went to put the new bearing on the car who ever had done so previously had left the spacer off. i wasn't sure were that spacer went but I tried putting on the front and it fit so i just finished and put it back together. to my surprise the grinding was still there. after many surfing and calling around I discovered that the spacer was ment to go behind not infront once I changed that and yes it was a pain in the *** i put the car back together and car was like new. hope that helps
