Default Wheel bearing or c/v joint? UPDATED

I have a 98 f-140 4x4 and i started hearing this "noise" int he right frt, well Today it got worse so I jacked it up took the tire off andwhen I amspinning the rotor/hub I hear the noise like at the 9ococlock position if it was a clock going around.

The faster it spin the more noticeable it is.

It sounds like its right where the c/v joint boot attaches to the wheel bearing hub.

Is there a way to tell ( more or less what is more common) if its the c/v joint(boot has no tear) or the wheel bearing/hub with out tearing it all apart?

Thanks

I'd get into it with the thought that u could be doing both. A bearing will make noise and rough operation all around the clock. A shaft has fewer, but much largr bearings in its joints, so only getting a symptom at the 9oclock could point that way

Does it get worse or sound better if you steer to the left or right?

well i replaced the c/v shaft and it is still making the noise but no where near as loud, well it seems the c/v shaft isnt 100% tight against the hub. Is this a sign that the hub is bad?

I have a 98 f-140 4x4 and i started to hear a noise in the right frt.

Jacked it up and the noise was coming from the c/v joint,so i replaced it and the noise went away about 90%,still can hear it a little. So I jacked it up it up took the wheel off took the brakes off and started to spin the hub and the noise is still there and it seems the c/v shaft is not 100% tight up to the hub, could the bearing be shot and causing the shaft not to tighten up?
