So I've had this noise for about 6 months now and thought it was my left-front cv axle because it had a torn boot. I assumed it was just slowly killing itself and I'd change it when I couldn't take the noise any longer. Last night I changed the axle and the noise is still there.
DESCRIPTION OF NOISE:: Loudest when turning left AND right. It sounds like a really worn tire that has been chewed up from a bad alignment when turning. It's relative to speed and can feel it a little bit in the steering wheel.
HISTORY: I changed the right-front axle about a year ago with an Advance Auto NEW axle (not rebuilt).
I can't tell if it's on the left or right side.
Could it be that other axle making the 'whirring-grinding' noise?
