Per your description, I would lift the front end and check the wheel bearing end-play. You should not have any play in the bearing.
Next check the play in the drive axles, you could have a trunnion bearing failing.
If it is noisy on a left turn, the right side is more than likely bad and the other way around.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards.

Sounds like your hub assembly is needing to be replaced. You shouldn't be doing over 100mph on the street/highway. One it's just plain dangerous and two you could loose control and kill yourself or somebody else. If you want to do over 100mph, take it to the dragstrip or somewhere that it's safe to do so in a controlled environment.

My 1996 Chevy Suburban is experiencing low, intermittent noise and vibration that can be felt through the steering wheel and seats. This only occurs at 50 to 55mph and not constant like an unbalanced


possible wheel bearing at fault. if it heard/felt more when turning or swerving and is a growling type noise, more than likley is. possible bad tire shouldnt be over looked. is abs light on? most often when wheel bearing is bad a speed sensor ( within wheel bearing ) will go open, setting abs light. vehicle needs to be ran on a hoist to try and duplicate noise/vibration.

Having a steady growl once in motion, sounds louder on the passenger side. Manual transmission - no problems (yet) with day to day running down the road. Just noise - getting louder.

I have a GMC 2003 Envoy, each time i drive it sounds like im speeding but im going really slow , i need to change the oil could this affect that and what do i do about the sound


Difficult to know what sounds like speeding: engine, road noise, what ?

If the oil change were to help, you have bad, bad engine problems. I suspect you may have a wheel bearing that may have failed. This makes a lot of road noise, alters with vehicle speed and NOT engine speed (drop to idle, noise the same).
There is a possibility of transmission slipping. this lets your engine speed up, but not actually move the car.

There is a third common issue and that is FAN. When your fan clutch fails, is locks up a normally free spinning (somewhat) fan, as if the vehicle needed max cooling... This noise follows engine speed, the vehicle seems to go just fine, but huge noise.... This sometimes is called Jeep fan noise, as many of those used to have direct drive fans.... If this is your case, the fan clutch gets replaced, not huge $, but more than it should be.

Have a constant growl when driving. Transmission shifts OK and growl remains constant. would it most likely be the transaxle or differential?


If the noise gets louder on one side if you swerve down the road - it is most likely a wheel bearing.

Jack up the vehicle and try to move the tire in and out and laterally.
Any movement indicates the bearing is bad.

Growling noise


That sounds like a wheel bearing starting to go bad. Usually you'll get a rumbling sound that will increase in volume and sometimes pitch as the speed increases. A quick way to check for wheel bearing wear is to first determine if you hear it at the front or the rear. Once you know that (or at least have an idea which end it's at), see if the noise gets louder or quieter when you turn. If you make a right turn and the noise gets louder, the problem is on the left side of the vehicle, because you're loading the suspension on that side. If you then turn left at speed and the noise goes away or quiets down, you reinforce the fact that it's on the left side because you're unloading the suspension on that side.

When you've determined as best you can which side and which end of the vehicle the noise is on, you'll know which wheel to check. Jack up that corner of the vehicle, and grab the tire at the top and bottom. See if you can get it to move at all by shaking it. A good wheel bearing will allow no play whatsoever. If the bearing is going bad, you may see that you can "shake" the wheel while it's mounted on the hub.

If you have a hard time determining which wheel it is, jack up each corner and shake each wheel in turn and see if any of them shake while mounted on the truck. If you find one that does, you're most likely looking at replacing a wheel bearing.

Try this out and post up what you find, and we can take it from there.
