Noise at high speeds

I just recently heard a new noise from the front end. It sounds like I'm driving with tires with big lugs on it. The faster I go the louder it gets. I'm leaning towards bearing. I through it in neutral and the sound persists. I swerved back and forth but the sound didn't change which I thought was odd if it's the bearing. Anybody know what this is? 07 g6 gtp.

Starts off quiet... gets louder the faster you go? Definitely sounds like a bearing, Jack it up and give the wheels a spin by hand, Any noise and it's likely coming from the bearing.

Yeah..,It sounds like a hub bearing. I had the same thing with two Fords I had. Sealed hub bearings., engineers answer to less problems.,YEAH RIGHT!

Thanks guys. I jacked it up and spun the wheel but all I hear is the pads rubbing on the rotor. I'm going to order both sides and change them myself. Should be all good.

OK guys. Opening this back up. I noticed driving today I can hear the power steering pump getting louder when I turn and give it gas. Also when I'm stopped and turn the wheel back and forth I hear squeaking. I think it may be coming from the rack. Do you think the noise I'm hearing all along is the power steering pump? I checked and the fluid is topped up.

I had the same problem when I bought my car it sounds like the intermediate shaft. This is a common problem with the g6. It cost about $375 to have them fix it at the dealer. Hopefully this helps.

Hey Mike.

Ya man it was the bearings. I changed both front. Might as well do both. If one went bad it won't be long for the other to go.
