Q: I hear a growling sound coming from the front driver side. I believe it's the bearing. Should I consider repacking or replacing?

asked by on

I'm 90% sure my bearing is going bad but I'm not sure if I should repack or replace the driver side. I hear the growing sound when I'm going about 30 meh. I haven't experience any issues when turning.

My car has 153000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
