Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
It is most likely a bad wheel bearing, but it maybe the other side, some times the noise will carry threw the front end and make you think is the other side, we have a rule in my shop we never replace one wheel bearing we alwise replace both bearing on the end we are working on if the customer does not want that then we send them to another shop, the reason we do this is for just the thing you have going on it just saves allot of problems, and we never use cheep hubs, never use auto-zone or advanced or O'rileys, we had to warranty 12 hubs from auto zone in one year, i have never had to warranty a napa hub in 25 years, it just does not pay to save a few dollars. and all though it most likely is a wheel bearing there is a small chance it might be a carrier bearing in the front differential it would also go away when going around a corner but if you remove the wheel bearing and turn them by hand you can feal if the bearing has a bad spot. if the bearings feal good then pull the front differential.....GOOD LUCK
