    Question bad hub/wheel bearing?? please help

    hey guys i thought i was haveing tire problems but after 3 diferent tires on the front of my camaro i guess i x'ed of a tire problem. i talked to a few buddys around town{one owns a suspention and alignment shop and the other one is the service mgr at a gm dealership} and both of them said its not the rotors and they bothare going toward a bad wheel bearing/hub asembly. i got the front end up on jack stands and moved the wheel back and fourth at the 12 and 6 o'clock position and the wheel dident seem to move but maybe it takes more force then i can put on it. and the vibration is there going straight and turning to the left like going 70-80 mph on the hwy but it goes away when i fallow the road to the right so if it is a wheel bearing what side would it be? im guessing the right/passenger side? since the weight of the car is on the drivers side when going right.
    please help guys its realy bothering me and in scared some thing might happen when i driveing the car on the hwy. the bearing/hub is like a $100 from the parts store.oh and the body of the car has around a 100k on it.
    let me knkow guys so i can get to work on it.

    Yes the hubs need to be replaced.

    They are a sealed unit and I would replace with new ones on both front wheels.

    You do not need a shop to do it as it is an easy job.

    It should be the right side. At 100K you probably want to do both. I went thru the same thing with my Blazer. Changed the right side and the noise got a lot quieter but then I could hear the left side so I did that one next.
