driver side front end roar

my 1999 f350 4x4 has had a roar and a high pitched squeal on the drivers side front end for a while. today i replaced the hub assembly with a timkin unit. after spending $340 on the bearing assembly the noise is still there. if im driving and go around a left hand curve the noise goes away and it feels smooth but as soon as i straighten the wheels back up the noise and rough feel comes right back.anyone have any suggestions on what else it could be? thanks

I had a similar problem on my 77 250.

The inner race on the wheel bearing was rotating on the spindle.

It will get hot real fast and can turn the spindle blue from the heat.

Did you replace the spindle?

If you take it back apart, you can inspect the bearings and spindle for this possible cause.

I was riding with a friend in his 150 when this happened to him. From the sound and vibration, I knew instantly what the problem was.

Your problem may be something else, maybe the brakes.

Just thought this might help give you a place to start. Something to eliminate as a cause anyway.
