When it rains it pours

So I just did my back brakes, now getting started on shocks for all four corners and I have a roar while driving down the road, my front right tire spins free but my left tire spins free then drags then free and I can't tell if its a hub bearing or a rotor dragging anybody else experience this problem also when I come to a stop I feel a vibration under my feet I thought it was the sway bar end link but I took it off and its still doing it. Any ideas? And now for some reason I keep on getting power steering fluid all over pump are things just prone to leak or what.

jack up the wheel and grab the top and bottom and see if it wiggles up and down if so its a wheel bearing.

Try getting them cut could help. They will at least tell you if they are warped or not.

I've warped my rotors before, and you can feel it vibrate real bad in the pedal. Getting any of that? When my wheel bearing came apart on my chevy it was howling pretty good. Also the tire was leaning in just slightly right before it came apart.

If the rotors were warped you should feel it as a pulsation at the pedal...Also the shaking of the wheel up and down and side to side doesn't eliminate the possibility of a bad wheel bearing.. Sometime you have no shimmy just a ruff spot right until it leaves.. Don't ask me how I know.. Good luck

Roar or howl on my truck has been wheel bearings. I've had to do a few when I went to 22". After replacing 3 of them I sold the 22's and now, no more problem.

You mean 22.5"s right? Because it would be kinda dumb to put regular 22"s that belong on a 86 buick, onto a diesel.
