Re: Strange Noise...

In my experience wheel bearings can whine and rumble long before they show noticable signs of wear or shake.

Spin the wheel and listen for a roughness - if you can reach in and rest your finger tips on the suspension spring you may feel a vibration - sometimes the spring acts as a tuning fork and resonates.

Even the very best of mechanics using a stethoscope can be mislead at the best of times simply becauswe they cannot replicate running conditions.
