Did you grab the sway bar end links and wiggle them? They are the usual suspects with that type of noise.

FYI. If it is a wheel bearing (on a hoist, wheel will be loose in all directions, and should make a roaring noise at 50+mph) - Dynamic automotive on Wayne Rd (S of Cherry hill, N of Mich ave, Westland or Wayne, not sure) has the Timken bearing and hub assembly replacement for $65 and will press out / in the bearings for $25 if you bought the parts there. They charge $40 if you buy parts elsewhere, so it is the best deal. I know, I had 4 done laset week.

WTF, are you reloading a gun at 7 seconds? That was distracting.

well thanks for all the help guys!

I put it on stands and had my someone turn the wheel while I was looking up and saw the top part of the strut holding the spring in is actually hitting the tunnel for the suspension.

No idea why, but I need to take it off and then see what the deal is.
