Default 1999 roaring noise from the right front

I have a 1999 4wd ranger that has a roaring noise coming from the right front side. Don't think its road noise, but I'm not sure, I jacked it up and the wheel seemed solid had no play in it. Just replaced the Idle arm about a year ago. What could be causing it?

Are you sure abut the way your tire is balanced? Do you notice a shake or vibration in the pedals or steering wheel or is it just noise? Could also be alignment. Is your tire wearing more on either side? Check the bearings. Could be trying to seize up.

Can't really feel anything in the pedal or steering, the tire is worn more on the inside then the outside. How do I go about checking the bearing?

Yes I would like to know how to check the bearing also.
