    The R hubs do have a new service part number... maybe they updated the bearings.

    No wheel bearing failure here but both outboard CV joints were making noise. CV joints failing has been more common but first I have heard of a wheel bearing failure. What were the symptoms?

    Here is the noise on the CV joints (not mine):

    So there was no noise. I felt a vibration on a high speed turn repeatedly that had not been there. Came in and jacked the car up. 3 wheels felt solid and the drivers rear had about an inch of wobble or play when you pulled on it. I am thinking it is a wheel bearing but have not had it on the lift yet.

    Definitely the symptom of a wheel bearing. The S550 guys seem to see that issue often. First I have heard of a GT350 though.

    Yep, pretty common on S550 GTs.
