2011 5.7 overland front end noise

I have a 2011 overland with 12700 miles.it developed a front end noise about 1000 miles ago.had it to the dealer they first said wheel bearing after putting it on the lift the bearing was fine so they rotated the tires and it is still there and getting worse.they want to keep the vehicle give me a loaner to look into the problem.the noise was first noticed at 30-40 but was always there but on perfectly smooth roads dead silent and smooth. Recently it has became loader and more violent feed back is felt in the steering wheel.help would be welcome thanks for your time.

If you've been off pavement, maybe check for big rocks stuck the skid plates?

See this thread.

Re: 2011 5.7 overland front end noise

thanks for the info but i have not been off road as of yet.the noise is more of a mechanical possible to do with the wheel bearing or a cv joint spline on a prop shaft,or somthing with the suspension.it started as a low woob woob almost like a wind noise now it is loader and more pronounced and there is alot more vibe in the steering wheel.the sound is almost like a crap car with a bad strut.thanks for your time it is going to the dealer monday hopfuly not for long.
