I think my wheel hub is shot based on what everyone is describing.
It's making a groaning whining noise from the right front and gets worse as I increase speed. Goes away with right steering input. Stays with left steering input.
I'm on vacation right now and don't have tools with me.
Assuming it's the wheel hub, can anyone recommend a shop in the area to fix this quick? I doubt it will make the trip back to TX.

Thnx in advance...

Honestly, depending on when the noise started, and how many miles are one the hubs, you may be safe to drive it for a while. I drove on 2 already noisy hubs for nearly 1000 miles on the highway. The noise was so bad, and the vibrations I could feel in my feet. Got home, then continued to drive it to work for another week until I got my Timken's in the mail. Just my 2C.

It would not take much to get it changed out you could rent the tools needed from autozone if need be. (even if you bought the tools I bet you would have less than 100.00 in them).
