Default 2wd Front Hub Problem

A grinding/moaning noise has developed in the last few days. I am assuming it is coming from the front end because I can feel it in the steering wheel. Would this be a hub assembly? If so, what would be the best way to find out which wheel it is coming from?

Most likely the hub is at fault. Raise and support the front end and then grab the wheel at the top and bottom and rock it to check for play. Rotate the wheel to check for roughness or noise. A bearing can pass these tests and still be bad, so you may have to actually remove the brake rotor and then spin the hub to feel anything unusual.

Don't be too quick to assume front bearings or brakes. Changed all that on mine, still grinding. ABS light coming on. Dealer not finding anything. Suspect ABS control unit, very costly.
