Whaling noise from front end

What noises do bushings, ball bearings, etc make when they are old/bad that can be replicated at a specific speed;50-65 in my case. It's a whining, "wah wah wah wah wah wah" noise that's deep in tone.

Most likely a tire.

No. I was thinking Wheel bearing? Definitely not the tire noise

Check for play in the bearing...bad bushings won't do that. I had to replace what looked like perfectly good tires because of the same sound. Are you still on pirellis? Mine got very noisy at around 23k miles.

Mine does the same thing, that being said my week bearings are fine, and my brakes aren't warped. Their actually brand new. I'm certain I have a bad tire. Their both wearing weird.

You sure it's not coming from the rear axle assembly is it all the time or when you under a light load mine stops when I let off the gas I also installed a mgw shifter that has more trans noise but if I recall mine did this when before the shifter install I have a 2014 mustang Gt with the track pack 3.73 gears I have 11k miles on the car it's been this way since I bought the car brand new. The whine sounds Almost sounds like a go kart when you let off the gas at the kart track.

Interesting. Usually a whine (if that's the sound) is a bearing. But on a relatively new car? IDK.... Jack it up and check out the play and spin it and listen carefully. Are you sure it's from the front?
Power steering pump(which we don't have), alternator, water pump, and the dreaded timing chain guides, all make sounds which sometimes include a whine. r u under warranty ?

sounds like the metal brake dust over hitting the back of the rotor or the brake pad is dragging the rotor check the back of the rotor where the dust shield is

Yeah it definitely sounds like something is dragging against the rotor. Pull the wheel, spin the rotor, probably the shield as the guy above said.

Or could be a bad bearing. Is there any side to side play?

No side play from what I can tell. I'll pull the wheel and spin the rotor and see what happens. Both sides do it. The drivers side does it way worse than the passenger side. You think this could cause the noise I hear?

I have that exact same noise. Going to ford Monday to sort it out. I have all new Pirelli tires and I am betting it is a bearing, but won't know until ford looks at it early Monday.

Look at my other two posts describing this. It starts at 50mph and runs until 80. Don't hear it under 50mph.

Please do. I go Monday morning and will let you know as well. Hope it fixes. I hate it when the 'stang has a lame leg and can't run like it's designed.

Well it's not the rotor, brake pad, caliper, or dust shield that's causing the noise. Not sure what it could be. It doesn't do the scraping them however

The roaring sounds like a bad tire in the video but the dust shield sound like it is rubbing I would just take the tire off and pull the shield away from the rotor and spin the wheel. It sounds just like a brake dust shield

If it's a bearing try to turn and see if the noise goes away usually it will get worse turning one way and if you turn it the other way it should stop or the sound will get lower. But in you jack up that side of car and wiggle the tire see if there is any play in the bearing

Wheel is fine. Hub bearing is fine. How can you diagnose a bad front LCA? Since I know it creaks a crap ton over bumps. Maybe a bad bushing? The front tires have a good chunk of tread left. Doubt it's that. Just annoyed af and its 90 still so I can't drive with the windows down 😔

Try to push down on the front fender maybe it's a strut. Have you put lowering spring on the car? Those struts are bad about coming apart I had to replace mine with steeda struts after putting springs on mine
