Default Road Noise or something more?

Ok tomorrow i will be jacking up the '08 and checking the brakes and such on the front. I had thought that there was allot of noise coming from the right side, thought it might have been the worn tires so put new tires on the front but the "road noise" is still there. however there are time that the noise subsides, sometimes pressing the brakes silents the noise and sometimes it doesn't. I replaced the brakes and rotors several months ago before i did the tires, again thinking it was the tires. Anything else I need to check will having it jacked up? Thanks!!!

Sounds like you may need wheel bearings.

Dorman 930 300 Front Wheel Bearing Hub Assy | eBay

Should be under $200 installed. Call someone else. The hub is probably good.

Ya,the wheel hub is good. You need the bearing, witch is not included in that add. Although the wording is a bit confusing. That price is really high. Check around. They all go in the same way. Nothing out of the ordinary on the pt.
