You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

Ok I hope my idea will be helpful. My wife drives my other truck my 2004 F150 and it started howling like making a whistling sound when it would hit a bump when you make a turn or drive at really speed. I thought it was the suspension just sqeaking until it got louder and louder over the next few weeks. It ended up being that I needed to replace the front brake pads on my truck at the time. Now I didnt have to have my rotors turned or replaced because I caught the problem in time, but in your case I dont know. I would say just check it out and see how bad it may be or even if thats the problem. Just remember it doesnt matter if you replace the hub or rotor if your pads are worn it will still sqeak. I hope that it is just this minor. I hope my idea/advice helped.

Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

Roar from front right wheel

does the roar change with left or right turns? most likely a wheel bearing, Dodge has poor front ends. the brake dragging? the rotor would be hot after driving, discolored, smoking.
