    Hi guys

    Been having this strange metallic whining sound that seems to come from front right side. Started about 1.5 months ago around the time I installed the dog bone insert. I did an alignment/balance and tyre rotation today after installing the front H&R sway bar (highly recommended) and the sound is there. It's hard to describe, it's like a thin gauge metal vibrating. More noticable on straights between 50 to 100+ and noticed that it goes quiet when I do right turns. It's not a diff whine as I know how that sounds. Do u guys think it's a wheel bearing?
