Why do you have to replace it so soon? If it helps my front lower control arms were bad, and I have a stock TH, dealer replaced them no issue or questions asked

I think it's my bearing. Going over bumps it sounds like my tire is going to fall off. Something is loose. I don't think the dealer will do it because of the mods. Maybe it's worth a shot.

A bad wheel bearing will initially make a whining or droning noise that eventually ramps up to something that sounds like a helicopter gunship is following you closely. Grinding noises may also emanate from a damaged wheel bearing. The bad wheel bearing will get noisier in curves on which the damaged bearing's load increases (right wheel bearing gets louder in left curves and vice versa)

If you hear noises going over bumps, you more likely have a damaged/worn suspension part, for example a control arm (worn bushing, stabilizer bar mount), a worn tie rod end, or possibly a defective CV joint or axle shaft.

While unusual on a relatively new car, any of the components can potentially go bad at any time.

Put the front up on jack stands and go over all components - hands-on. You should be able to track down the defective part.

Lift which ever tire you believe has the bad hub, spin it while you've got your hand on the strut. Usually you can feel the feedback from the bad hub/bearing
