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.

SOURCE: some speakers not working
TEST THE SPEAKERS USING A 9 VOLT BATTERY, USE A JUMPER TO THE SPEAKER TERMINALS, TOUCH ONE LEAD OF THE 9 VOLT BATTERY TO THE SPEAKER AND QUICKLY REMOVE THE POWER, THE SPEAKER CONE WILL JUMP IF THE SPEAKER IS GOOD, IF IT IS THEN THE RADIO NEED TO BE REPAIRED. THIS IS MOST LIKELY A RADIO ISSUE.

hey ic, sounds like your refrigerant is low. if you have a low charge it will usually get you slight cool air on the driver's side. have the system checked and make sure you have a full charge. also, be careful about running it low on charge, the refrigerant has oil in it that keeps the compressor lubricated.

could be a wheel bearing. get the car up where you can spin the wheel, now grab the strut spring with your hand and spin the wheel. you will be able to feel "roughness" on the wheel that has a bad bearing.

coming from the front or back? If back, check your rear end fluid. If front, might be a universal. Bearings tend to hum or grind all the time, not just when turning
