Symptoms Of Front Wheel Bearing Needing Attention?

I suspect my front wheel bearing need repacking or something. When I am vertical.. things are quiet.. if I tilt to the right.. 5-10 degrees I hear a mild "rawr" sound.. not physical.. don't feel it... only hear it... I'm wondering if there's something up with the front axle... my '03 has 20K on it. Any ideas?

Prolly just the tires. Check this LT FAQ item I pulled outta the Technical drop list.

Front wheel bearings are usually replaced around 100,000 miles.

+3 on the tire thang.

Re: Symptoms Of Front Wheel Bearing Needing Attention?

Your custom license plate seemed real familiar, so I googled it and read the Wickepedia. Here's the scary thing, when concluding a business deal, and a lot of times, just saying goodbye, I do that bow thang with the hands pressed together. All this time I thought I was a Texan. Mayhaps the cowboy and Indian thang?
