Newbi to board. Ask what is this sound?

I guess your guessing right. without any sound affects or me being there I would say so.

Lift the car on that side and move [rotate] the wheel, move it from side to side [wobble.]

You will probably find a lot of movement, wobble in your hands.

It also could be a CV joint, but I have heard about the bearings more often then not.

Yes sometimes the bearing is not bad enough to give a lot of play. Is this in back or front.

When you rotate the wheel, you do not hear anything, another thing it can be is a rock stuck between your caliper and your rotor.

Where is the noise coming from, have you gone through gravel.

A worn brake pad can grind, but usually this is only under braking.

Need a little more info to really help.

I thank you for the help. It sound as if it is coming from the front drivers side. Saying that currently i have it in the air with the wheel off to check that out. Like I said turning left only turn right =nothing. I have also just checked the PPBB archives and there is a post about a recall on these parts. also someone said the dust shield. It is making a grrr type sound though that cant be good. Once again thanks for the help.
