^^Heres the video of the sound. This is at about 35mph. At lower speeds maybe around 15 the sound is louder with more time in between. Higher speeds it kinda blends together and is less noticeable. Doesn't make the sound when revving while not moving. No clicking in the axel or torn boot or anything like that. I do have a aftermarket exhaust on the car so the drone sound is not related unless the whirring is blending in with it.

At first I thought it was tire balance or bent rim, got the tires balanced and rotated and it didn't effect the sound.

Have a worn ball joint on that side which I plan on replacing soon and was otherwise thinking it could be the wheel bearing(was going to change while doing the ball joint). Most videos I can find on line have the wheel bearing making a whirrrrrrr sound. In this case it kind of sounds like a wobbly rub sound? Not sure how to describe it.

Other ideas were brake pad rubbing.. I don't feel a pulsation in the pedal when breaking and the wheels feel comparable in heat after a long drive.

Will keep poking around but I'm always open to suggestions. :dontknow: Will try to get another video of the noise at lower speed as well.

If you swerve a bit from side to side it will change the sound if a wheel bearing. Swerve to the right and it might dissapear--sure sign of wheel bearing. It sounds like a bearing.
