Noise on Front Drivers Side. Rotors? Bearings?

My wife heard a loud rubbing type roar from the front passengers side. It went away within a few seconds. We took it for a ride when she got home, but it would not do it again. Made our Christmas Eve runs the next day and did not hear it. Left out Christmas day and it started about 5 miles from the house. Last a few seconds then stop, then start back in a few seconds. Started doing it longer, would stop when we hit a bump and in a few seconds start back. Did not sound like brakes scrubbing. Pulled wheel off today just to make sure on brakes, not that bad. ?? I can feel that the rotors have some warp to them when I apply the brakes. Noise did not get louder when I applied the brakes hard, but did with light pressure. But like I said would stop when I hit a bump and 5-10 seconds later start back. Late 99 F350 4WD not a dually if that matters.

Im sure you've already tried this so i dont mean to insult your intelligence but when you had the wheel off did you rotate the hub assembly to hear if it was the bearings. If you have ANY indication that they are the culprit, change it RIGHT AWAY.

I had a slight noise under my X when i left middle Georgia, drove to Pensacola, FL and the noise was pretty bad. Of coarse all my tools and things were back in GA so i didnt get to look at it until the next weekend. when i finally pulled everything off the needle bearings were so bad that they were ground down flat on one side and most of them were in a sideways position.

O and something else to think about also. Usually if your hearing something from the drivers side while your in the cab, its not from the drivers side, rather the passenger side. Thats where my PITA was. Good luck.

Changed hub on drivers side and noise went away. There was a little play on the passenger side when I pushed and pulled on the top and bottom of tire. I am going to replace the passenger side next weekend.

sure is.
Go to dieselorings.com and to the Guzzles link, same guy. find needle bearing maintenance. It shows in great detail how to change one. Accually it shows how to servive the needle bearing but you have to remove hub to do that.
