    The reson i am thing wheel bearings is because on my elantra the same thing as your describing about howling , Was going on with it, At city speeds it just about drove you up the wall. ,But it was so bad that at 40 km and up the car shoock like you wouldn,t belive, bit i do a lot of driving arond in one day, But one way to check them is to jack the car up , Grab on to the sdes of the tire end just reaf on it from side to side if the wheel is woobling back end forth then you no it is a wheel bearing, Hope this help you out,

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

CHECK FRONT STABILIZER LINK KITS FOR PLAY.
ONE ON EACH SIDE ATTACHED TO STRUTS.

SOURCE: vibration in front end

It is likely both your track bar and the lack of a steering gear box stabilizer. The bushings on your stock track bar can be replaced with polyeurethane or metal bushings which will help curb the problem.
The steering stabilizer attaches to your steering gear box and your frame allowing the steering to be more stable. I have put both on my truck and it drives like a caddy now as a result. If I had to choose between the two items, my money would go to the steering stabilizer first. I believe I bought mine here:

Hope this helps

It could be a couple of things.
Loose or worn out strut - (jack up car, remove tire and shake the strut really hard to see if it's loose. Check for signs of leaking or damage to strut)
Missing rubber isolator under front spring (visually inspect the suspension while tire is off).
Broken sway bar mount or missing rubber in the mount on the frame. (Lay under the front and look for where the sway bar mounts to the frame. Make sure everything is tight and the rubber is still in it.

Oldsmobile Intrigue front end howl


Need more info...front end you say... A particular side? Is replaced tire the same as other 3 tires? hear it while driving, or braking, or both? Hear it more steering left or right or going around a corner?

Could be a front wheel/hub bearing is my only guess at this point. Howling or groaning could also mindicate a transmission problem.

2003 chevy blazer front end howling and also rear clunking.


the howling sound could be a window with a little opening, check if your window was totally closed. the clunkin? or clickin sound you hear could be the road salt or ice thats being thrown to your mud guard by the wheel. anyway an actual inspection is recomended, pep boys can do a courtesy check for free.
