Default Help! passenger front side noise; maybe wheel bearings?


Have a 2005 GT convertible with high output Turbo with 52,000 miles, and yesterday I heard a sort of grinding noise when I made a sharp right turn, but making a left turn is still quiet and no problem.

Would this be a wheel bearing problem, or something else? If so, where would be the best place to have this replaced? And should I have both sides replaced, or can I just have one done at a time?
Les Schaub, OEM, etc?

Thanks again!

Cool Re: Help! passenger front side noise; maybe wheel bearings?

What size tires?
Struts old?
Did the noise continue?
Are you sure it isn't the tire rubbing the wheel well?

I have 215 45R 17 tires. But I found out what was making the noise; it was a hub at the bottom of my steering column that was rubbing. Also one of my front strut bars was wearing out. Wasn't a wheel bearing at all, and the dealer said everything else looks fine. The dealer fixed both since I have an extended warranty, so nothing came out of my pocket and all is well.

Thanks for the replies!
