Default annoying vibration noise while driving...

my car makes a vibration noise while im driving...no its not the tires, i swaped the old wheels and tires on and it still makes that noise. im looking at a repair book and it says it could be cv joints, wheel bearing, or a shit load of loose suspension or steering components.......idk where to start...anyone go through this and can guide me in the right direction....its like a loud humming noise... thanks....

both of the axles are pretty much new..... left is about 3 weeks old...right about 4 months..im pretty sure the right axles is rebuilt or w/e they do then sell them again....it sounds like the noise is comming from the front right. the left is brand new for sure though..not remanufactured. so i wouldnt be suprised if it was the cv joint in the right axle.. how do u check for wheel play. i had it jacked up and nothing seems different on either side. so idkkkk

thats not only wheel bearing thats going to test, your probably testing the ball joints just as much.

anyhow, i would say, more than likely by the age of your vehicle and what your describing its definetly a wheel bearing.

if you have the time and patience go ahead and replace the front 2, if not, pay someone to do it, most shops will do it for around 100 a wheel which isnt bad. kinda depends on how pumped you are on penny pinching and how busy you are. unfortunately hondas have pressed in bearing thats can be a bitch, but generally last a long time (thus why you havent had this problem before. older american cars you wouldve already replaced them)

good luck
