Chevy truck probs

Yes I know way off topic but the truck forums I've been on are no help and I've tried them all and I trust ya'll way more on here. Anyway here's the thing I have a 06 chevy silverado 1500 4x4 and have a sound coming from the front end. It sounds like " whomp whomp whomp ect". And I've looked it up and everything pointed to the hubs, which I've replaced not even a week ago. Still have the sound and goes away when I step on the brakes. Also changed pads and rotors at the same time as hubs. Any help or advice would be appreciated

A loud whomp whomp whomp? Does it get faster with speed? Are you sure you dont have a separated tire? I got a crappy set of tires on my tow rig and they all separated at some point and made a similar noise. It also destroyed u joints, shocks and even broke exhaust hangers...

Yes it does get louder with speed and really loud when I'm slowing down, really loud on slowdown on newer pavement. And I just got these tires about two months ago, they we're pull offs from a tire shop and they still had most titties on the side walls but I only paid 490 for all 5 got a deal but if it's them, I can get rid of em or do a rotation and see if that would fix it maybe?

Yeah maybe rotate them and make sure they are balanced. My experience was with new tires. I just got some out of a bad run at the factory is what they told me. All 4 of them separated over like a year and a half. They were e rated even and still went to crap. The first one went at like 1200 miles or so. But I had 2 cords of green maple on a trailer and around a cord on the truck. I didnt tell the tire shop that.lol. The rest were just normal driving though. They replaced them with the same tires and Im still running them with no problems.

Some tires are just loud too. Are yours MT's? I know my open country MT 35s with airsoft pellets to balance them make your ears hurt on some roads if the windows are down or the top is off....
