#74 of 123 silverado/sierra front wheel bearing
Feb 03, 2008 (12:55 pm)
I have an 04 solverado w/ 80k miles.
I am getting a hum/vibration above 30 mph when I turn to the right. I believe the left front bearing is about to fail.
How do I know it is the left or right side and how tough a job is it? Are special tools that GM is so famous fro required?

My 06 silverado 1500 w/ 35k also makes a noise and vibration when turning to the right at speed between 35 and 55 mph. I have not heard the noise when turn left or at low speeds. I also experimented in both 2 and 4 wheel drive, but could not hear a difference in the noise. I finally got the dealer to hear the same noise on a test drive today and will let you know what they find once I get the car back. I did have the right front wheel bearing go out on me at 27k, but fortunately it was repaired under warranty.

My dealer confirmed that the noise when turning right was the left front wheel hub assembly bearing.

thanks for the response.
I talked to the dealer and they said right off the bat it was the bearing.
They said the part was $408 new and about $300 after market.
$95 for labor.
I am looking online for the part and I will do it myself.

I own a 1997 Chev. Step-side 4x4, 5.7L, where can I pickup a good functional Ram- air hood? Will it direct air into my stock breather housing? Can I use this hood on rainy or snowy days....my truck is a 365 day/year ....not a yard ornament.

I have a 00 Sierra 1500 ext cab. I am thinking to put a 3in body lift, add a leaf, and torsion keys. I would like to know if i would need aftermarket shocks and if so what would you recomend?

Mar 30, 2008 (2:12 pm)
what is better...... i have a 1988 1500 sierra long box, and want to put a camper on it, the camper is older and weighs about 800 lbs, our vehicle weighs about 6000 lbs. we do not know what the gvwr for our truck is, as it was removed from the door, if someone else has a truck like ours, could you let us know what it is...we want to know if we should put 1 or 2 leaves as we already have 4 on each side, or should we go with the air bags?
