Default Front end roaring and vibrations

I just bought a 2000 s serious and a few days ago the driver side started vibrating sound and like a roaring noise from the tires anywhere from 35 mph up. I thought about the wheel bearing but someone said it could be a control arm. How would I tell which one it is since I cant afford to fix both. Also when I put the tire back on after changing it, and went to tighten th he lug nut up after letting the jack down there were movement in the whole tire

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Jack up that wheel.

If you can rock the wheel - top and bottom - and feel/ see movement - and probably hear clunking as well - it's a bearing.

Of course if it IS the control arm - when you pop the ball joint loose from the steering knuckle - you will find that loose.

So you will find it either way. Just wait to buy parts till you determine what is defective.

How are you set for tools?
