This is most likely a bad strut.

SOURCE: Very loud hum coming from front tire, you can feel

it would pay you to go to a" tyres only" place, it may be a tyre separating or could be a suspension mal function , either way it would not be a good experience for it to fail on the road at any to find out exactly what it is and there will be a person trained to find it at the proper service centre

Jack up front drivers side wheel and grab the top and bottom of tire, give it a good firm wriggle and see if you can detect any movement.

Ford ranger 2008 rides rough put new shocks front and rear did not help

Check tire pressure, 32 in rear no more than 35 in front. You can bump up rear when your hauling something but run it lower when empty.

I have an O2 Dodge ram 15102 Wheel Dr., how can I tell if a bearing is going bad in one of my wheels?

You have to jack the vehicle off the ground, then grab each tire at the 12:00 and 6:00 positions. Then as hard as you can try to wiggle the tire up and down. If there is any movement then that wheel bearing needs to be replaced.

Why is my front driver side tire wobble when i hit a bump

First, have the tire inspected before you do any expressway driving. you could have a damaged tire with a tread or internal ply separation. second, inspect the front shock absorbers, it sounds like the left front shock has failed and lost its hydraulic fluid. third have the front steering linkage and front suspension checked for worn or loose tie rods, idler arm, ball joints and stabilizer bar links. do this ASAP as you don't want to have the tire fail or any parts break while you are driving!

Rattling, clanking sound over small bumps on drivers side front tires area when driving

Check the droplinks for the anti roll bar... some are like ball joints, and they can seize, which causes the symptoms you are getting.

Drives roughly bounces like its back shocks. Not smooth at all feels like the tires are bad..Only in the front. Bought new tires. Feels like I went over a bump but its smooth pavement

If you never had the problem from 2006 until the new
tires went on you have both a financial issue,as well
as some tough diagnostic work to do.

I don't have all the answers for you but the tires
are the focus of the starting point.

I would rotate one tire at a time from the
front to the back
Mark the inside of your wheels with a sharpy,
1 & 2 on front 3 & 4 on the rear
Make a chart on paper of the positions your
tires are at. You should have that for all your

You may have a bad tire that is so heavy on one
side it won't balance out.

I have a Lincoln LS that I run 42# in front and 38#
in rear and it is not at all hard or bouncing

When drivind loud vibration from front end does this going backwards too the noise is reduced some when turning a left hand curve 2000 ford windstar also makes like a binding sound as well

Wheel bearings, Drivers side is bad. You can check this by lifting the front tires off the ground. Grab the top and bottom of the tire and try to move it up and down, not spin it. If it has any play the bearing is bad. Check both sides. You can spin it and if you feel any roughness, it's bad.

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps

See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.
