Hi nathan1,
I'm very sorry to hear about the issue with your vehicle. I recommend taking your vehicle to your local GM dealership for a diagnosis by their service department.

If you have any specific questions about your vehicle, please send me a private message with your contact information, VIN, mileage, and the name of your dealer.

Thank you,
Sara

Thats not to hard of a job,glad you found your noise I know stuff like that drives me nuts till i can find it.Front end noise and electrical are some of the hardest things to find alot of times and they can be annoying.Just glad you found it.

I see you only replaced the pass side hub.A lot of times they say to replace them in pairs but I never bought into that.Maybe the driver side one is going bad also.
