That's indicative of a wheel bearing, which is why you were told to change that out. However, it's also possible that the carrier bearings in the differential (where the drive axles attach) have gone bad. That happened to me on my 300ZX several years ago, and I had to replace the diff bearings. I would have them checked out somewhere other than a dealer (you'll probably get a better price from an independent shop).
As a sidenote, to be sure it wasn't a wheel bearing, if you hear it quiet down in a turn one way but get louder in a turn the opposite way, it's likely the wheel bearing. If you turn left at speed and it gets louder, then it's the right bearing (since you're loading up that side of the car). If it gets quieter in a right turn, it's the right side (you're unloading that side of the car and not putting as much weight on it, so it doesn't drag as badly). See if you get that symptom just to be sure that the wrong side front wheel bearing wasn't changed.

If it is a 2 wheel drive, it is probably your wheel bearings. If it a four wheel drive, it could be the front differential, the joints on the axle shafts, the locking hubs, or the wheel bearings. On the four wheel drive, crawl under the vehicle and grab the axle shafts and see where the excess movement is. Also try grabbing the tires and see if there is any movement. There shouldn't be any movement while the wheels are on the ground.
