Front end noise

I'd try swapping wheels with someone else to rule out noisy tires; they can
sound just like a wheel bearing, and it's a free test.

Looks like I'll be changing the right front, since I already did the left
front. Hopefully that will be it. I would say the sound mine makes is
consistent. Hopefully I can post some successful results next week.
