Mine is making a noise when applying power  - sounds related to wheel speed.
No sound when coasting. CV joint was my first thought but it checks out
good. I would think wheel bearing or tire would always make the noise. Noise
very noticeable at freeway speeds. Occasional vibration in the steering
wheel also. Any ideas?
