Possible wheel bearing wearout?

Changed whole spindle on passengers side still howling, but not 100% sure the bearing was good in the used spindle either, when i turn wheel to right howling starts, also after i changed the spindle brakes click when i apply, dont remember there being a spacer between the caliper and the pads......

Your used bearing is no good.

I'd replace both front bearings....since they have to be pressed in and out. One time deal.

positive on the howling as a bearing? Could be worn tires howling depending how they wear. Just throwing stuff out there.

You said spindle, so i assume you mean the rear and have disc brakes on the back. As the fronts are pressed into the knuckle.
