    Got this unusual issue. At slow speeds there's this grinding almost screeching type of sound that comes from the front left side. The noise occurs again at 30mph and 40ish mph. I've had the lower control arm changed but that's it. It was happening before the change.

    Wheel bearing?

    Front Diff Growl (TSB T-SB-0120-08)?

    Does it only happen when you hit the brakes?

    Rock stuck in there somewhere?

    I think it may be the bearing. I opened my window and could hear it when accelerating. At 60 my steering wheel shakes a lot too, but this has been going on before the LCA change.

    Kind of sounds like a metal gate opening
