    Hello all! Have a 2008 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z-71 4x4. 3 Days ago a noise started when I turn only right. It sounds like I'm driving over very fine rumble strips. Only does it from about 30 MPH and doesnt seem to get any louder as I go faster. It does very well seem as if the sound gets faster paced, but not scaled.(when going 30 the sound is not half, of when I am cruising 60) Truck has the extended warranty, but really don't want to deal with the dealership unless I have to. Any thoughts as to what I can check out? I've checked fluids, tire pressure and for debris.

    The sound almost sounds as if my Michellin LTX tires has a baseball card scraping against the treads. Best way for me to describe the sound.

    Thanks in advance for all your responses. I've done quite a bit of searching, but have not seen anyone with the sound as I have referred to.

    P.s. I feel no vibration in the cab what so ever. Just a light humming/vibration noise.

    Check the left front wheel bearing.

    Well went out and was about to jack up the front end, and found out what the noise was.

    I said it sounded like someone had a basedball card on my tire, it was my black plastic fender well cover. I found out why the air dam was on there! I took off my air dam 3 days ago, around the time I started hearing the noise! Somehow the air was blowing into the weel and caused my tires to rub a little bit on it.

    Anyone know of a way to secure it a little more better?

    Well, that's easier to deal with than a wheel bearing....
