Question about 1997 Buick LeSabre
Your issue sounds like a wheel bearing to me. Remember if it is at all possible replace both.

I had the same problem with my 2000 Buick LeSabre last year. Took it in and they determined the wheel bearing needed to be replaced. Costs about $300 per bearing, but definitely needs to be replaced as you'd be in serious trouble if the thing went out at highway speeds.

SOURCE: bearings or cv joint?
For quickly ruling out the CV Joint, in a parking lot, turn one way in a sharp circle, then the other way circle sharply. A clicking sound is indicative of a bad c/v joint or 1/2 shaft.
Humming while in motion (most of times it will only occur during a specific speed range - over a certain speed goes away) says a wheel bearing is shot.
Normally you should replace both at the same time... however you can check with a laser temp gauge each front hub after driving. The hotter one is bad - or a less scientific approach is to swerve going down the road. and listen for an decrease in noise going in one diretcion over the other.
If you are turning the steering wheel right, and the noise goes away, the right bearing is bad and vice versa.
