lift the car support on jack stands remove the wheels remove the brake systems remove the wheel hub locking nut and then remove the strut (this must be compressed or it will hurt you)
remove the axles then when that is complete you need to have the wheel bearings knocked out of the brake hub or removed from the strut assembly and then a new pair reseated, or bolted on then you can assemble in reverse, if you are not mechanically inclined I would recommend a mechanic to do this.

It sounds like it is a front end suspension problem. The following should be checked: upper and lower ball joints, the sway bars links, and even the shocks. Replace what is problematic, and your front-end noise should disappear, if it is a front suspension problem. Hopefully, this will FixYa problem!
