Front Axle Noise?

has anyone else ever have noise coming from their front axle? I thought it was the wheel bearings, but looked at them and they were quiet and in perfect order. I spun the axel after removing the wheel, break, rotor, and bearing and it still made a grinding bearing kind of sound. I have been looking all over the net, and this does not seem to be a common issue.

Welcome Justin!
If not a wheel bearing, then i strongly suspect a CV [constant velocity] joint at the end of the axle. Had to replace one on my 79 Rabbit years ago. It failed as i was turning a corner, and ball bearings broke through the cv boot onto the road lol. It left me stranded [not far from home], so i recommend getting it positively diagnosed and replaced very soon!
Hope it helps! 08v
