You are correct in suspecting the front hub bearings, do the following to confirm first, and if needed I can walk you through replacement if you think you are capable of performing the repair yourself.
-Raise the front of the vehicle on a suitable jack so that one of your front tires is completely off the ground.
-Grasp the top and the bottom of the tire and try to wobble the tire and wheel assembly top to bottom, (on a vertical axis). If there is any play whatsoever, replace the bearing. Do the same for the other side.
-If no play was detected, do the following. Take the vehicle for a test drive, while driving approx 45mph, substantially sway the side to side. Does the tone or pitch of the noise change with the direction of the sway? If so, again, the bearings are bad. Write me back with the results of these tests and I will tell you which one to replace. Thanks...

Front end clunking noise


Take the brakes apart & clean up all rust,check everything out
& lube things when putting back together
Have to do that at least once a year

Don't need machining every year or new pads, but have to knock
down the edge on the rotors & get rid of rust & lube (anti-seize on
everything but inside the caliper slide bolts, there you use the synthetic caliper lube

The clunk could be worn drive axle joints or drive shaft joints
or shocks
When your on the brakes or hit bumps your loading things differently & the clunk goes away

2002 olds intrigue shakes while idling with brake on in drive


The cause is too low an idle and engine is starving for fuel so it shakes like that.The thumping sound you hear is most likely just the exhaust being too close to the floor amd bumping against it when in drive with brake on.You said yourself that it stops when you put it in nuetral,well the engine speed goes up when there's no stress on it.With some one holding the brake and it's sitting there thumping,set the idle speed up just enough to make the engine stop rocking that way.

Noise when Driving


if your car is not making noise during at idle well you might check the power steering fluid level it might be causing it to make a noise you said that its only making noise when driving right you might check your drive belt for wear it might be slip and about with your ABS it should throw a code on your dash board and also you mention if brake or strut could be causing it well its easy to identify brakes are making noise happen when you brake and strut will make a noise when you hit a bump ,hard corner well to diagnose it jounce the car ride on it on the front bumper also the rear.then when it comes to your transmission you said you can feel the noise all the time even at idle so dont worry for this time.
