Question about 2006 Ford F-150
Lift and support the front of the truck to get the wheels off of the ground. Grab the top and bottom of the suspected tire, and try to tilt the tire. (Pull the bottom, push the top, and vice versa) If there is any movement, the bearings are most likely bad. Also spin the tire and listen for any noise. Harshness, grinding, or growling noises are faulty bearings. Of course, removing the tire, brake caliper bracket, caliper, pads, and the rotor will give you a good look at the bearing assembly to inspect for metal shavings, and evidence of grease leakage. Your truck's wheel bearings are, I believe; sold as a complete assembly, and are fairly expensive. A detailed inspection is a good idea to make sure you are getting the right part, and they can be replaced as required, unlike brake parts that should be replaced in axle sets (both sides).
