Default Roar in left front

2005 5 speed. I have a roar in the left front when driving....alignment seems good and I have new tires.. I can push in the clutch and coast and I still have the roar....can't figure it out.

Wheel bearing probably or maybe the drive axle on that side. Get it up on the rack and grab the wheel top and bottom, side to side and shake to see if there's any play or spin it and listen to the axle around the boot area.

The noise ought to change when you turn while driving - wheel bearing.

Don't know but I would shop around for the best price and reputation. They can run a while. But you just can't count on any particular time before you start to get so much play that you start to damage surrounding peaces. Price goes up then.
