Sounds like a wheel bearing,to check jack it up on that wheel then from top to bottom grab the tire and then try to move it up and down like your trying to pull it off if it moves alot its bad.no it doesnt take any special tools but it is difficult to remove.to replace the bearings they need to be pressed out and back in,or you can buy the whole unit,cost wise it only about 75.00 difference.

A bad u-joint makes a higher frequency sound /vibration than say an unbalanced tire. If you have the v-8, you have all wheel drive and the front driveshaft is always driven. Crawl underneath and wiggle both front and rear driveshafts, if one move significantly more, you've found the culprit. Go ahead and replace all the U-joints at that point.

What is this roaring sound in the front right axle


If the roaring sound get louder at highway speeds try veering side to side in your lane safely of course to see if the roar noise changes,this would indicate a hub & wheel bearing assembly issue and would need to be replaced.

What could be causing a vibrating noise when going slow speeds but decreases when in faster speeds


Hi Chris, I'm glad to help! Vibrating / Roaring sounds can be anything from rear or front diff problems. Drive Line U-Joint problem. Wheel bearing bad. Even transmission problem. You have to pin-point where the vibration is, is it in the front, in the rear, on the right or on the left. Is it in the center of the vehicle and so on. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Chris!

sounds like a bad cv joint in one (or both) of the front axles. is the popping sound more prevalent when in reverse, with the wheel turned? if so, i'd assume that it is a bad cv joint and one or both front axles will need to be replaced.

Front-end noise


If the noise is coming from the right front when making a left turn it would be a wheel bearing if you can narrow down where the sound is coming from i would check that.
