Smile phantom dragging in front of car

sounds as if a water bottle dragging under front end but nothing underneath when checked. CV axle? Wheel bearings? DIY Fixable? Keep in mind I have NO off/street parking. But have a mediocre mech ability. basic tools but access to local parts house rental spec tools.

Jack it up and spin each wheel individually to narrow it down. Could be bearing or something hung up on brake rotor. You've already ruled out old lady with a shopping cart stuck underneath.

Some things are better left unsaid, which I generally realize right after I have said them.
