Bad Wheel Bearing?
what are the symptoms of a bad wheel bearing? i have a loud howl/hum coming from front end. seems to get a lot louder at higher speeds. very loud can barely hear radio on HWY. it is constant whether stepping on gas or not it just stays howling/humming. can this be bad wheel bearings? 2003 WJ 4.0 136,000 miles

At least in my case there was a noticeable change in the driving and handling, my wheel bearing blowing caused death wobble, the lift and shake method works, if you do tight corners in a parking lot you feel it click, grind, or steering vibes thats another way to check, that is what mine was doing and how it was diagnosed.
3.5 inch lift
