Wheel Bearings or something else?

So I'm trying to diagnose a problem with my 2007 compass. I believe its a wheel bearing however its says to check it jack up the wheel grab the top and bottom and see if there is any play. Its coming from the passenger side so I did both the front and back. It seems like there is very little play as in none. Here are the symptoms:

Thumping sound that is increases and decreases with speed. Also become more pronounced when turning right I a believe. Its 2007 with 130,000k base model 2wd.

Thank you in advanced

my guess would be the bearing but, my alternator coupler went and it sounded like a bearing, except it wouldn't explain the noise being louder when you turn

Don't know if you've figured this one out yet but, wheel bearing failure is hard to feel by wiggling the wheel. My guess would be tire, or maybe C/V joint?

Could be belt separation in the tire or bulge. Check it and/or if uncertain swap with the other side and see if it moves to that side.

One open question (it seems i need to replace a rear bearing):

Do I need to replace bearings in pairs? How recommendable is this? Is it the same for example with shock absorbers?

Please heeeeelp.

Here in the local market TIMKEN is availble. Is this alright?


Many thanks,

wheel bearing aren't replaced in pairs. If that is what the problem is but it should be felt and/hear when spinning the tire.

Timken makes excellent bearings. If you're not sure running the wheels while all 4 are off the ground (on a hoist is best), but if on jacks be careful it doesn't fall off. But I personally have not heard bearings thump.

I just got replaces the rear left bearing. Well it came complete, not only the bearing as years ago.

The bad news is that when i went to test the truck, the noise is still there. Now i am not sure if it is the other side (right) or is something else.

The shock absorber in the rear left side seems to be quite oily, i dont know if this can be the reason. Or maybe the wheel? misaligment?

I got replaced the oil in the back transmision box at the rear. Can be something in here????

I will try to rotate the tire, maybe this helps.


Regards,

p.s: I will try to change this jeep to a toyota, i can not be all the time in the shop and spending money in expensive spares. I like very much the way jeep looks, but realibility is also more important at the end of the road...

Your rough roads must be taking its toll on the suspension. If its bearings you should hear it spinning the wheel when jacked up. If its knocking or creeking then could be the rear tie rod (about 8 inches long w/bolt through bushings from wheel to rear arm).

Depends on noise etc

Oily shocks?

If your shocks have oil coming out of it, its a sure sign that it is bad. Oil should not be leaking out of the shocks. The nitrogen gas has probably all leaked out too. Better to replace the oily shock with a new one. Do it in pairs.
