Question about 2002 Chevrolet Suburban 2500
I would check the wheel bearing/hub assemblies as I have replaced several of these. Usually they make a thrumming, rumbling, or growling type of noise that increases with speed and which may get louder or quieter when taking sharper curves at highway speeds. I"ve seen very few problems with the front differentials on these but have put in dozens of hub & bearing assemblies that are noisy or worn. Sometimes, but not always, if you raise the front tires off of the floor a few inches you can rock the top of the tire in & out a bit which can indicate a loose/worn hub but they can also make noise without having any looseness present so it isn't a perfect test. You may need to have the vehicle put up on a hoist where it can be more closely inspected. I have seen some pinion bearings go bad on the front differentials but it is fairly rare. Good luck, hope this helps out a bit.
