I bout this car a few weeks ago and everything works fine except for a loud roaring sound from what seems to be coming from the front left wheel. The guy who sold it to me had it checked out and they could not find what was causing the noise. I've since then bought new wheels and tires hoping that would fix the problem but the noise is still there. I've noticed the noise becomes louder on turns making me think that maybe the wheel bearing is shot.
Any ideas on what this could be?

Turns out its a bearing. Can I just buy the bearing and have it put in or do I have to buy the whole hub assembly?
I'm 95% sure it's the bearing. Possibly a U-Joint maybe? The noise is noticeably louder when the car is leaning on the drivers side tire like around curves. I have an 02 model if that helps explain anything. I'm having it checked out tuesday praying it's just the bearing...
