Noisy front wheel bearing

98 1500 silverado 2wd, front wheel bearing starts to ''growl'' at about 45mph. Original bearing with 150,000 miles on it? Rotor/Hub has been changed at least once. Can bearings be changed without replacing hub?

    Oil is slinging out from the center hub on all four wheels of my 2013 f350 with only 33k miles. What should I do? Is this a common problem on this truck?

Yes the bearings can be changed on this truck. The bearing races will need to be removed from the rotor to do this use a punch and hammer once the rotor is removed. You will need inner bearing and race, outer bearing and race, and a seal, plus grease to pack the bearings. The hub on these trucks is the rotor. Please rate.

It is possible but i do reccomend changing the bearing races in the hub when you do it to prevent any premature wear on your new bearings. A new hub/rotor assembly will come with new races installed if that makes it any easier.

Front diff growl in 2wd


This would be a failing bearing in the differential. More specificly, I would suspect the pinion bearing. The differential will need to be disassembled and all (4) bearings and bearing races inspected for wear/ pitting.

I think your balljoints in front are bad. On 4x4 I repaired recently, both of them where bad and it had a lot of vibration. I'm guessing it doesn't happen when it's only in 2wd.

sounds like the cooling fan clutch to me, look under the hood next time you hear it, will be easy to confirm if that is the noise.

Hearing growling whine sound from passenger side front. Growling produces fast vibration (not shimmy). Sound increases on left hand turns. Sound more pronounced below 60 mph.


You need to replace your wheel bearing. Ford Escape bearings usually need changed around 80,000+ miles from my experience.
