I am trying to determine which of my wheel bearings are bad. My plan is to start at the front and to replace both then work my way to the rear. The car has 80k miles and just wondering if the fronts are normally the first to go. I already tried the parking lot method at slow speed but no change in the noise.

Jack a front wheel up. Then grab it at 12 O'clock and 6 O'clock and alternate pulling and pushing each location in a rocking motion. If you get movement that is the one with a bad bearing.

I went around the car twice and all wheels are solid with no movement. I pulled out my automotive stethoscope and could hear a light rumble in the passenger side bearing so that is where I plan to start.

Could also be center support bearing on passenger side driveshaft.
