Default Dodge Durango 99, grinding

Wife's durango makin noise.

Making a kinda wavy grinding noise, seems to disappear when turning to right, returns on straight. Feels like its in the feet.

Possibly transmission?

jack the front up and see if left or right side wheel moves. id bet 5 bucks its a wheel bearing. the unit bearings are garbage. you said it goes away when turning? then its a wheel bearing not the trans.

Bet on wheel bearing also. Have replaced both sides on my wifes durango. Was told they are junk and it's a common problem.

I vote for wheel bearing also, but is your wife a trans mechanic? She might know what she is talking about.
