Grinding/Roaring Noise going around curves to the right?

Here lately I have noticed a grinding noise coming from my front end when I go around curves to the right. It wont do it going to the left though. Is my driver side wheel bearing going out? Also it only does it at road speeds not when I am going slow. Any ideas?

That would also be my guess. Wheel bearings. Won't take but just a second to check it and find out.

Well I just checked the bearing and and everything on the front end with it in the air and I cannot find any play anywhere My front driveshaft is spinning freely with the truck in 2wd, so I dont think that could be causing any racket. I also noticed that at about 70-75 I get a whoom whoom whoom kind of sound. Could that be part of the grinding in the curves?

Wouldn't the hub be loose if the wheel bearing was loose?

could still be tight, but the bearing is dry, causing the noise when its loaded, it will likely fail very quickly and without much warning, bearing load occurs to the wheel on the outside of the turn, as weight is transfered to that side of the truck. so if noise occurs turning right the left bearing would be suspect.

I would order parts and pull it apart on your terms, not when it decides to fail. you can remove the bearing and pop the seal off, and note the condition of the bearings, my guess is it will be rusty and dry

Can I inject some grease through the seal for a little more life? I have the hub/bearing assembly off as we speak and it does sound a little dry. If I can just do something while its off to help get me by.

Does your bearing have a wheel sensor on top of it. I changed out one of my axle joints. When i spun my bearning it sounded dry so i dumped some 80w90 oil down the sensor hole. I had to constently turn the bearning so the oil would go down in. It was a slow process but ive ben driving about 15000 miles with same bearning and no troubles yet

sorry some have the abs sensor and some dont. One good thing they are a lot cheeper without sensor. If it was me I would try to squirt some gear oil or grease through the seal with a sirenge. But im not familer with how thick, or tight the seal is off hand. 2001 dodge ram 2500 4x4 stock with 190,000 miles

Well I drilled a tiny hole in the side of the seal and I have been injecting grease into it for twenty minutes now. I dont know how much of it is actually getting into the bearing itself though.
