> Gang,
> To revisit:  Wheel bearing noise, increases in intensity with loading of
> right side.
> -Replaced right side front bearing.  Noise persists.
> -Pulled both rear bearings, and inspected, looking for race fretting.
> All rear bearings look very clean.
> -Checked all wheels for play.  No excessive play observed.
> The noise is getting a little louder, and continues to disappear
> if the left side gets loaded, and come in strong if the right
> side is loaded.  No signs of driveshaft/CV involvement.
> Anyone ever see a situation where the bearing that gets unloaded
> makes the noise?
> Still stumped, but eventually something will fail and become obvious.
> Any more ideas?
> Thanks.
