My front end noise is resolved..Yippee!!! I had replaced the front left
bearing(guessing), because on hard right turns it was louder and went away
hard left. Was a fifty/fifty chance..and it was wrong. Changed the right one
today. Problem gone. It is amazing how such a small imperfection in the
bearing race, that I could just barely catch with my little finger nail
could cause so much noise. The way these bearings are made, I can see why
the old left turn, right turn stuff, can give the wrong diagnosis. I suppose
a shop with the car on the lift running the wheels and listening with a
stethoscope could find it, but, oh well, now I have two new wheel bearings.
