Grinding/chattering noise

I recently purchased a 2000 GC Laredo 4.0L I6 with Selec-trac and am getting a grinding/chattering sound at highway speeds. Sounds like its coming from the front driver-side. It goes away for a split second after hitting a bump or dip in the road. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Check your wheel bearing on that tire. Probably what is causing it.
