I'd appreciate your opinions on what I think may be a front wheel bearing problem. Here is the background.
- Vehicle is a Subaru Liberty, 1992, GX, AWD, 2.2L wagon, automatic, 343000km
- I jacked the vehicle up and cannot detect any wobble (movement) at 6-12 o'clock or 9-3 o'clock positions.
- I changed (swapped) two front wheels, noise still there!
The sound appears to be coming from the front RHS of the vehicle. I have recorded the noise I hear with audio markers as my speed varies (1 minute duration). Here it is.
Please vote or comment below. Thanks for your help guys and girls!!
EDIT: 5-5-21. After having a closer look at and around the wheel hub and knuckle, as some suggested, I noticed that the rubber boot on the ball joint was ruptured. The rubber boot on the driveshaft is good. So I’m going to replace that ball joint and see if it has any affect on the noise!
