Default New noise from driver side

I was driving with my windows down close to 40 when I start hearing a weird noise coming from front driver tire. I had my buddy drive it slow while I checked it out. It’s coming from the piece next to the rubber boot that the boot clamps to. The 4” round pieces that connects to the inside of the wheel. It won’t let me pull up the 20second video so y’all can hear it.

Sounds like your hubs are trying to lock in...possible vacuum leak. The hub gear is held back under vacuum in 2H..when it loses or has low vacuum it tries to engage.
Try it in 4H on a dirt road.

Note that when the car is turned off, it locks (fail safe if you are 4 wheeling and lose a vacuum line)...so you wont hear it when you jack it the wheel and spin.

It’s the hub bearings so I ordered 2 from 1A-Auto for $119 because advance auto zone wanted $180 each. So I figured why not do both

Sweet. I just did mine. They were making a bit of noise at speed, sounded like Mud tires, except when you took the load of them!

The clicking sound you hear points to a bit more that just the bearings unless they're totally stuffed.

A little follow up:
Replaced both hub bearing assemblies,
The drivers side was squeaking bad and when I took the passenger side off atleast 30 bearings fell out and there was metal shavings. The metal shavings were from the CV axle shaft so those will be next and then hub actuators. A-1 Auto has very good prices and it seems you can buy a set of whatever for the price of one from advance auto or auto zone, etc... Put it this way I paid $119 plus tax for a set of hub bearing assemblies and advance wanted $185 + for just one single assembly.

Let us know if you have premature wear. Hope it's not one of those "you get what you pay for" type things regarding quality

I've had to replace a hub assembly and actuator that was the "knock off" brand after less than 2 years.

Replaced all suspension parts and hubs with MOOG. If it fails, atleast it has a good warranty.

If your hubs were bad, make sure you do a good inspection of your suspension components, ball joints, steering stabilizers, ect as each can cause premature wear of the others and not addressing other issues just wears on the new parts.

Amazon has some name brand hub assemblies for just over a hundred bucks as well, just FYI.
