    thought wheel bearing, but perhaps not

    ok i thought my drivers side bearing had gone, but symtoms dont match, a bearing tends to whirrr, this is a groan and is more promouced when i turn wheel to turn wheel to pasenger side, even the slighest touch to passenger side witll set off this groan, yet i turn to drivers side its fine, noise goes.
    but noise gets more pronouced when drive faster.
    could this been bush probs?
    had wheel off 2day as had 2 falkens fitted, cudnt see anything, only thing needs soring is anti roll bar links

    ideas??

    jack the wheel up and spin it with your hands, hold the coil spring and feel for a vibration. Then compare it to the other side.

    Sounds like wheel bearing mate it wont be the antiroll bar links, just done mine today and they sound like a dull clunk when turning or going over speed bumps. check your brake it not binding on the front also.
