Front Wheel Bearings


New member
I was looking for some general info on front wheel bearings. When I go around a corner with some speed I hear a grumbling. I would almost describe it as a noise that is in relation to a wheel turning. In other words it is not constant but is repetitive and the speed of the car dictates how fast the sound is. I do not get this in a straight line nor can I hear it when I am acclerating or braking in a straight line. I have not tried braking or accerating in a turn.

I feel fairly confident it is a bearing issue. However my question is what should one expect to pay to have this done by a local non-dealership shop? Are specialty tools required? Is this something a novice can do?
