Check all your mirrors for looseness and all of the weather stripping, in doors, windshield etc. It is probably something loose. Also check your tire pressure and check with your local Nissan dealership service center to make sure your vehicle has had all of the recalls fixed. This particular vehicle has several. Recalls are fixed by the dealership for free. Have your VIN number ready when you call.
when you changed the hub assembly did it come with a new wheel bearing? jack the vehicle up and move the tire up and down and then side to side and check and hear for play on parts if there is play in something then that is your problem to me it sounds like your inner tie rods does it pop on both ends ?
Try rotating your tires from front to back. It may help with the noise. Get a front-end alignment which can also help with the noise by correcting a "rub" sound that originates from the 2 front tires fighting each other for control.
The place which replaced your bearings is probably correct. When you get bad bearings they do not always fail evenly across the 360 degree turning of the bearing race. If you imagine a donut with a flat spot representing your bearing- as the donut spins with the flat spot cause by a disintegrating roller, the tire is bolted to the donut. The tire is going to hit the pavement differently every rotation because of the play in the bearing is at that same spot.
This play will create small cups in the tire shape at the low spot transmitted by the bearing. When you replaced the bearing , the marks in your tire tread remained. These edges need to be worn off. Or some tire stores can Shave a tire, in an attempt to make it round again.
If you have a normal size spare, you can put the spare on the left front side of your vehicle and see if the noise goes away. If the rims are different on the spare, you can have everything remounted and pay for rebalancing and put the unused spare as a front tire. Then you know the spare is at least good as a spare, but noisy.
you should grease your ball joints and tie rods. Chances are these are sealed and have never been greased since manufacturing. Go to an autoparts store and ask for a hyperdermic needle for a grease gun and puncture the boot with the needle and give it 3-4 shots of grease. Allow a day or so for it to work in and you should be fine. The repair shops will tell you to replace these parts costing you around $400. Been there before and autozone told me to try this. over a year later and no problems whatsoever from doing this. The needle does not cause the boot to leak grease as I thought it would.
