listen and feel the car if the hub is bad sometimes it can feel "gritty" when your driving slow.

you would hear it and feel it more when you turn to that side.

if so the hub is easily replaceable. just remove the tire and put a donut on then let the car down and break loose the hub nut 35mm i think raise it back up and remove the brake caliper mounting harnes (2) bolts and the rotor. beware the caliper harnnes bolts are notoriously rusty plenty of PB Blast or my personal favorite Aerocoil

then its just three bolts for the front and the hub should slide off pretty easy theres a thin metal gasket sometimes if its never been replaced before.

install is just reverse :-)

I had the same problem. Check this link. Believe it or not I got the tires rotated and cleaned and it fixed the problem.
