    yeah ive heard that too its not gonna fix it and when the bearing finally does give up and comes apart you'll be left on the side of the road calling a tow truck the best thing to do is to get that fixed as soon as you can

    you don't want to quite down a bad bearing, you want to replace a bad bearing. Noisy or quiet, it's only doing more and more damage the longer it's in there
