    So ever since its been really cold out before my truck gets warmed up I hear a pulsating grinding noise from what sounds like the front right corner. Its like 1 second on, 1 second off. It lasts for about 2 miles going around 50mph then it goes away once I get on the highway. Once my truck is warmed up though it goes away.

    I'm thinking maybe a wheel bearing? Any thoughts?

    I cant feel any vibrations associated with the noise though which is throwing me a bit.

    Do a search for "growling". You can read about others, myself included, who had had or are having similar issues.

    True, my brakes could be hung up. I'll check out everything later this week when I'm installing my 885's

    well,i dont no about hung up but if u have a broken pad it could take a bit to settle in hence the noise is gone.just a thought.
