    Wheel bearings already with an almost new truck?

    Are you on stock wheels? Have you had any accidents?

    Im Trd sport wheels. When I'm turning and it's making the noise there is a small pause every 2 seconds but when I'm driving straight or right or below 55, there is NO noise. I hit a curb really hard in a snow storm back in October and have trying to track it down since then. I've rebuilt the drivers side cv joint, and replaced the drivers side wheel bearing just throwing parts at it but I'm thinking the passenger side wheel bearing is junk. I had the wheels turned and was sliding when I hit the curb so the pass side front wheel hit it straight on, i didn't just drive up on the curb. It brought the truck to a stop but I never saw anything broken had it aligned and nothing was bent everywhere I go says it looks fine and they don't hear anything with a stethoscope in the hubs...

    Everyone blames it on the tires at every garage I went to. It was so bad that I got a set of stock 265 65 17 geolanders and what do you know? Noise is still there. It's not a tire noise it's like a harmonic vibration specifically only when I turn left going faster than 55. That is the only time it does it.

    Didn't notice if you said it already but have you thoroughly checked the wheels to see if they may have warped during the impact?? Being just slightly out of round will cause vibrations and it intensifies with speed or when turning as you describe.
    Not saying that is your problem but may need looking into. A good tire/wheel shop can tell you if a wheel is warped.

    Trying to listen with a stethoscope does not always get you the result.
    Being up on a lift rotating does not load the bearing.

    The bearing is 2 sets of rollers. One of the outside balls could be getting ruff and when you load to the left that roller comes into play.

    It's possible hitting the curb deformed one of the balls but I can't say for sure.. Bearings can go out for no apparent reason....

    A set of chassis ears could get you closer to the area that it is.

    It's a 2011 Get it back to the dealer or another dealer and go for a ride with someone and point it out. It's the only way to start right now.......
    Vibes and noises are not the easiest things to track sometimes......

    I had that fixed, and they replaced the drivers side bearing under warranty. The only other thing it could be is the pass side bearing
