2ooo astro van bearings

I have a 2000 Astro van sounds like a front wheel bearing is going bad and is starting to pull to the right but No play in wheel when jacked up tried turning to listen for grinding but don't hear any . Is there any way to isolate which wheel bearing it it thats making the noise as I said its pulling to the right if that tells anything. Also its an all wheel drive. Thanks for reading

Between the “ABS” on the “Explorer” and now the alleged wheel bearing on the “Astro” it seems like you’re on a “Roll” here Johnny. Before we throw the wheel bearing under the bus, have you “Ruled Out” the most common issues that cause pulling to one side?

Long overdue wheel alignment. (Is tire thread wear even)?
Tire thread separation?
Brake caliper issue?
Bent, broken, or distorted suspension parts?
Emergency brake issue?
Brake pad issue?
Flex hose issue?

To confirm a wheel bearing, get the van on a lift and up in the air. While in drive listen at the “Hub” with a mechanics stethoscope for the defective wheel bearing.
