SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds

You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.

SOURCE: Front End noise and vibration

Check the U-joints and axle baerings. But its most likely because the truck is in four wheel drive.

your tires may be out of balance or your alignment needs to be corrected.

SOURCE: My front end makes a loud humming noise.

Alignment will not create a sound by it's self. The most common cause of humming (especially if you have an agressive tread design)is a wear pattern in the tires...check for that or rotate the tires around & see if the noise changes. If it does then you know it's in the tires. & Not always, but most of the time a bearing noise will increase or decrease in intensity if you load up one side at a time by doing 35-50 mph & turning slightly to each side.

00Linc ls noise from front end sounds like tire road noise steering wheel shakes a little


Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

My front passenger wheel makes a rubbing noise at 50 mph


You just need to have a mechanic or someone look at the front end. Has it been happening long enough to cause any odd tire wear on the tire? If the front end alignment is off, you could certainly get a lot more road noise, but even a badly worn tire would cause some noise.
If the tire is actually rubbing against something, and you hear it at 50 mph, that seems to indicate badly worn suspension parts- like ball joints or struts...so you should consider a good front end alignment shop and tell them the condition. They can check the tires and the front end as well. A reputable shop would check all that anyway, to make sure that the alignment job will actually keep the front end true.

Low pitch whirring sound coming from front end when above 30 mph


It could be that you have a front wheel bearing that is getting noisy. Have someone ride in the RF seat and listen to the noise to try to figure out which front wheel the noise is coming from.
Also , check the tread pattern of the front tires to see if it has some unusual choppy pattern forming.

Front end vibration at 40 mph and rubbing sound


Vibration at 40 mph hard to diagonisis without looking at front end. Could be wheels need balancing, new wheels and rims. Loose or worn suspension items.
Bring vehicle into a tire and alignment shop. Most Sears auto center have them.
With regards to rubbing noise again hard to diagonisis without looking at the affected tire, probably a splash shield hitting the tire in reverse.
Alignment shop will find the problem.

When I get to 45 mph my car has a thumping noise. Sounds like to me something to do with the drive train...cv axle, or something else. please help me I need this car fixed.


Check your tires, you may have a bad tire and make sure it's at proper tire pressure 32psi. Also check all the linkage like the sway bar end links, the bushings could be worn and moving around. Best thing to do is spend some money and have a tire shop rebalanced the wheels $15.00 each at most places and have them inspect the front suspension for any damaged or worn parts causing the noise you have. You can try rotating the front to rear wheels to see if the noise moves from the front to the rear to eliminate the tires as the cause of the noise, just make sure there all at 32psi. Good luck and be safe.

Thumping sound


If it's also a "wub wub" sound, look into your tires. I had a flat spot in my front driver's side tire that made the "wub wub" sound. Couldn't hear it well if driving slowly, but as I would pick up speed, the "wub wub" would increase in frequency and volume.
