Yes it could be the wheel bearing or your alignment is off. if it vibrates badly i would say wheel bearings are getting worn out

Have the tires checked for balance or bad cords.

Could be bad unbalanced tires. If the noise changes when you turn/change lanes, then it is likely a wheel bearing.

Front end of 2001 chrysler sebring is grinding when the car gets to 10 mph. It gets louder the faster it goes. When I turn the car to the right it gets quite.


this could be a brake issue, BUT it sounds more like a wheel bearing that is starting to break apart. I would stop by your local brake shop and get a 'free' brake inspection. they will tell you if it is the brakes or if it a bearing that needs to be replaced. if it is a bearing that is going out make sure you find a mechanic that specializes in Chrysler repair,, this will keep the repair costs down and the turn around time will be around 6 to 10 hours. don't go to the dealer enless the vehicle is still under warranty.
if it turns out that it is a brake disk/pad issue -- the brake shop that you took the car to will be able to do a full disk turn and brake pad replacement in under 1 hour and will only cost around 75 to 100 dollars.

Hello, I see you may a lot of changes and replaced a lot of parts. We leased an Explorer the same Year as yours. In our case there was a slight noise as well as vibration. The problem was the Front Hub bearings, They were bad at 18000 miles.

There are a few things I want to suggest. The spinning of the wheels on the lift will not load the bearings. A Dyno table can get everything turning with a load on it. As your vehicle is a 4x4, most Dyno's were 2 wheelers. You would have to call to find one for a 4x4.

Next, if the new Hubs do not help, have a look at the rotors. They are also balanced. You can spin balance the Wheel and rotor as a unit with a floor motor. It's not the best way to Balance because tire rotation or even shifting the Wheel on the lugs will UNbalance it. But this method CAN pinpoint a problem if a Balanced tire does not spin true when bolted to the vehicle. You will know the Rotor is off-balance and which axle is causing the problem.

Would be interested to see a Post of what you found.

Hum in the front end of Z71 4X4 at 30 mph and above. Feel slight vibration in steering wheel and at gas pedal.


Have the drive shaft checked out. You may have a bad hub bearing or bad CV joint. Look for cracks in the boot, and grease that has been flung inside wheel well

Subaru vibration


I had similar problem with my '99 outback. Replaced the front half shafts and seemed much better. A few months later seemed to be comming back so replaced the driver side shaft again and the problem disappeared. I had put in rebuilt shafts and the driver side shaft was not rebuilt correctly.
