Front end noise while turning

I might be OCD or something, but I pay extreme attention to my vehicles and sometimes even turn the radio off for a while just to listen and make sure everything seems fine. While doing this, I recently noticed that my front passenger side makes more noise(like the sound of the tires when you turn but a lil deeper) when I make left turns. Its really hard to describe this sound, but it is not the tire making it. The only thing I can think of thats remotely similar is the sound of a wheel bearing going out in a rearend and the wumwum sound it makes when you put a linear shifting load on it when turning. That still isnt exactly how it sounds, and once again its very vague so I might be just overly cautious. Any input is greatly appreciated.

You're not weird... I do the same thing. (with the radio)

Jack up the front and have a buddy firmly grip the tires at 12 and 6... wiggle the tire and check for movement in the hub and the ball joints... you'll see it moving. That would be my suggestion.

Radio

There are times I will drive 20 miles with the radio off for that same reason. Try the 12 and 6. It is not uncommon for SD's to take out wheel bearings. Highly common for ball joints.

Yeh wheelbearings and balljoints are normal and I can supply you with a link to good pricing kit and info on how to repair both if you determine one or both of the above is your problem.

maintain is on it. you might want to give these guys a look before you go buying a new bearing. it seems pricey at first but it's a really good upgrade. dynatrac also makes a similiar kit but twice the price.

If it is wheelbearings and you have oversized tires the OEM's aren't for you.

Last time I checked there was a month backorder on Dynatrac systems.

Best place I know of it Powerstrokeshop.com - PSD and Ford Superduty Parts since they have a kit that comes with almost everything you need for a lower price then your dealer will sell you the parts for.
