Wheel bearing?

Hey guys! Pretty sure i know the issue is the passenger side wheel bearing going out, but i thought i may as well concur with you guys first. The issue is my car makes a pretty loud humming/whirring sound when going in a straight line. The noise stops completely when i turn to the right, but intensifies when i turn to the left. The noise is louder at higher speeds. I checked for anything rubbing on both sides and could find anything. Wheel bearing?

Could be, fortunately they are not too expensive and pretty easy to replace

It could also be a differential problem. You need to get the rear wheels off the ground to check it out.

My 3.73 gears are noisy. I did not do the install. I will likely pull and replace everything at some point. There are people that swear that 3.73 gears make noise. I have ridden and driven enough cars to know that the rear gears should be quiet.

Yeah my plan was to do both sides. I read that the nut is one time use only, and that the dust caps are likely to break when removed?

I've re-used the nuts before on cars, they hold fine. My truck has new bearings on all 4 corners since last year and no issues at all.
