Front right wheel wobble when braking roaring noise

Front right wheel wobbles when breaking hard.. Also makes a ticking grinding roar. Now ac only blows from defrost.. Could it be bad bearing , and could it cause a vacuum leak..thanks

Re: Front right wheel wobble when braking roaring noise

I think you have more than one issue here.
Jack the front end up and grab the wheel at 12 and 6, try and shake it back and forth and se if you have a lot of play. Also do the same at 9 and 3.
In my opinion, if the wobble only occurs while braking, chances are you have a bad rotor. But something more serious could be happening as well. Bearings, Bushings, etc....
You need to diagnose further. If you can help it, I wouldn't drive it much...if at all.
As far as the A/C...Who is using A/C this time of year!?!?....Im not an A/C guy but I would venture that your blend door is faulty.
Be patient...guys with more experience will chime in help you figure this out.

EDIT:Sorry. Just seen you had another post concerning the same issue and have replies. Hope you get it figured out bud. Good luck.

Re: Front right wheel wobble when braking roaring noise

Does the a/c happen to blow on defrost only when you are trying to engage auto 4x4? My guess is you have a bearing issue. But as suggested, jack up the f/e and check for play in front end.
