Unhappy Wheel bearings?

Hello guys, so I've noticed a funny noise while driving my car, this has been going on for about a week now. Every time my car is rolling for example when I'm slowing down I hear a "do do do" sound sort of like a helicopter ( idk if anyone is gonna understand that lol). This noise is coming from the front passanger wheel, I suspect it is a worn wheel bearing? If im not wrong, can anyone tell me the best price I can get these for, and where ?

It's not hard to check- just jack the car up on that side and see if there's any axial play on that particular wheel. As for price, check your local sources with a bigger retailer like Rock Auto to see what prices are currently.

I can only add a warning about a vendor like rockauto, for certain types of parts. Don't use chinese-made parts. I'd look to http://www.courtesyparts.com/350z-pa...008-c-714.html for OEM Nissan parts in this case.

If I am not mistaken rock auto does sell the OE suppler TIMKEN? in both the front assembly and rear bearing.

You may be right. One some items they give you a few choices and you can pick the brand you prefer.

make sure you buy TIMKEN brand, I had mine replaced awhile back. I believe TIMKEN is the brand Nissan uses for OEM bearings.

Ive never seen a Timken stamped bearing on a oem 350z. Ive only seen SKF/NTN on wheel bearings, diff inner and outer pinion bearings, and diff bearings. Just my experience anyway, and it can definitely vary from production run over run.

So did you end up doing new bearing? Did it get rid of the noise?

Good luck getting any response from OP. He posted almost three months ago, checked back the following day, and never came back after that...
