So I had an alignment today at Al Tech and had everything corrected.
The settings were kind of off due to installing coilovers, and lowering the car.

What stands out is that the right rear had .6 degrees more camber and .04 more toe. Possibly due to the wheel bending event. So maybe that caused the tire noise I was hearing.

Pat at Al Tech didn't think there was anything wrong with the bearing either.
I'll know tomorrow if it's quieter. *crosses fingers*

Alright, so I'm pretty confident that it's the right wheel bearing. I managed to capture a distinct rolling noise. My guess is that there is a dent in the bearing races. You can also hear the left wheel bearing is making a quieter noise.
At 170K, they're due for replacement anyhow.

So I've looked at DIY'ing this job. Looks like pressing the bearing out can be an issue.
Is it worth buying a new hub flange for $60/side instead of trying to press it out?

Here is the bearing noise a various speeds.

Getting the hub out isn't that hard with a heavy slide hammer. Either way you still have to take the hub off because the lock ring that lets you push the bearing out is behind it.

You'll have a harder time getting the bearing out of the trailing arm.
