It is more than likely in the hub bearing assembly. The easiest way to check it is to jack up that side of the vehicle and grab the wheel on the top and bottom and see if it moves back and forth with some slack. Should not have any slack.

Vibration in front end especially after 40 mph


Hi Randal:
Odds are it will either be brakes, bearing, or drive shaft.
You'll need to jack it up, make sure it is supported safely, and check the brake pads and rotors. Then check the drive shaft cv joint and the bearing.
Cheers.

My 2006 kia sedona xl has a vibration in the front suspension driver side. Tires have been balanced and rotated, brakes and rotors are brand new. Vibration has not gone away. We need more suggestions.


Check for a bent rim. Rotate the left and right tires and see if the vibration moves to the passenger side.If not, you may need a front end alignment.

The first thing I would check is for a bad wheel bearing. If the noise lessens when turning left than I would look at the left front first. Chalk the rear wheels or set the emergency brake. Put the transmission in neutral. Jack up the left side of the car. Grab the coil spring and rotate the tire by hand. If you can feel/hear the noise than your on the right track with the bad wheel bearing. I can give you instructions on how to replace if you need them.

03 Trailblazer Front End Noise/Vibration


I had similar problem with my 03 trailblazer. It had a low dull hum in the front end with a little vibration being felt in gas pedal. Noise increased over a couple weeks and was louder turning to the left and quiter turning to right. A GM mechanic friend of mine replaced the front right hub and took care of the problem. Hub was about $160 at Autozone.
