Re: [DMCForum] Grinding in reverse...

I find that passenger side wheel bearings go before
driver side (on all cars). Due to the crown of the
road, most of the water and dirt is on the passenger

You say the noise is related to the steering position?
Maybe the tire is rubbing the control arm, or sway
bar?  If not, it is not a bad idea to change the
bearing out... Especially if you had other front end
problems (Tie rods, you mentioned)..  if a previous
owner drove the car with improperly balanced wheels,
the effect is a hammering on the entire front
suspension which will damage the steering and
suspension components (including the bearings).

When I have strange noises like that, I will try and
diagnose it with a trusted friend.  One of us will
slowly drive the car while the other is underneath is
looking/listening to locate the source.
