Jack the front end off the ground. Both wheels in the air. Start with the driver side, grasp the left front wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock, and push/pull, do the same at 6 and 12, feeling for looseness, should be solid, now try to raise the wheel assembly up with a 5' pry bar, hang on to the top of the strut feeling for noise. Should be solid and quiet. Now slowly rotate both directions the wheel and feel and listen for a low pitch grumble, there should be zero noise emitted.
If on car inspection can not clear the air about a bearing suspect, disassemble, remove bearing and examine in hand after cleaning all grease, NO NOT SPIN A DRY BEARING, if it's gone you will notice looseness, noises or hang up positions as you slowly turn it. There are 2 bearings check each.
Now the other side, repeat.
