I mostly feel it when I'm moving 35 or less but it feels like there is a lump in the tire and there isn't. The tires have been checked and rotated and it stays the same. It feels like the front passenger side. Sometime I don't feel it but most of the time I do and sometime very noticeable and other time slightly.

Have you inspected the front brake rotor for warpage or cracking in the center vent ribs? Or a hanging (sticking) caliper? And just what year and mileage and previous maint. has this Pacifica had?

At this point I'm soliciting info on what to look for and I will look at it this weekend. Thanks I will check the rotor. Its not that expensive or hard to replace I don't think.

Well I went to your profile and looked up your few threads, and found you have an 06 model Pacifica. Not knowing past history,mileage and such, it would be very difficult to offer an exact "you need this" answer. Just as you found out about your thread of ending up replacing your rides torque converter and comment of no help from here with the scanty info you gave in the beginning of that thread.

Sorry for the lack of info. This is a 2006 Chrysler pacifica Touring 3.5l. It has 42,000 miles on it and the torque converter was changed and fixed the chattering issue with the tranny that no one could figure out and I did by searching google. Tires on it have 12,000 miles on them and vehicle has no accidents. I get 17 city and 23 highway. Motor burns a quart of oil every 1000 miles. I have never changed out breaks or rotors since I have owned it. I do hear a little strut noise. Thanks again.

That helps immensely! I saw also that you are in the USA, are you in the "rust belt" area of the north east, as I am? That is why I suggested checking the brake components. Especially since you seem to have tracked the concern to a particular corner.
Axle bearings will "drone" or "howl" in sound, but would not usually cause the concern you post of. At 12 years of age you may have a strut mount "rattling", making some noise, but again not usual for the posted concern.
My 42K on a 12 year old vehicle, if not in a rust belt area..should last you another quarter of a century!

I'm a ways off the coast and not much rust here. Just feels like a bulge in the tire but I know there isn't since the tire were rotated and the problem remained. No bearing noise but there is strut noise.
