hello, im not sure if this is the right place to post this but here goes. i have a 2004 mazda3 and when i turn the wheels theres a clicking or rubbing noise and the faster i go the louder the tire noise is. i too it to the shop and they told me that i need new driver side wheel bearings. i pretty much figured that was my problem but they told me that to fix it that they will need to replace my axle for the cost of $190. my question is ,is that right? i had to replace wheel bearings before that didnt need the axle replaced, but this is a newer car and i just don know. i dont want to be cheated and i really want the problem fixed, so if anyone could help me then id be greatfull.thank you

if you have them do the bearing let them do the cv axle too, its connected to the hub and wearing of the hub can strain the joints inside that axle so it is a good idea to go ahead and replace both while its apart so you dont have to tear the same thing apart again in 1000 miles because you cheeped out. might even want to have them change both cv axles as cv axles wear fairly evenly and on a 2004 im willing to bet the dust boots are rotten and cracking anyways
