    I have a pretty bad howl in the front end of my truck. I lifted the front and have no play in the bearings as far as i can tell. When I pull sharp to the right though the noise will go away. Any ideas??? :poking:

    Sounds like a wheel bearing. I had a bad wheel bearing, but no play. Jack it up again, spin the wheels. If one side is quiet and the other sounds like metal on metal, you found your bad bearing. I did this and thought it was just brake drag, so I took the brakes off, but the noise remained.

    Driver side or passenger side, because when you turn to the right your right side comes up and that takes the load off of the bearing?

    Should be passenger if you are turning right and it goes away.
