Most likely it is a Hub bearing worn out. If you have access to a highway with a sweeping curve the outside tire turns faster than the inside tire following the curve. So if the noise increases on a left curve, the right side is bad. If the noise increases on a right curve, the left bearing is bad.

You did not state whether you have 4 wheel drive or 2 wheel drive.
The 4 wheel drives have the Hub bearing. Check around for parts prices. The price can vary by $100 from store to store. If you have the 2 Wheel version it is much cheaper to replace and you will need a wheel bearing seal.

Do spend a little time checking the other components in a 4x4 as the additional components can also make noise.

Left front wheel shifting and loose

Alarming, don't drive it except to a mechanic. Possibly:

- wheel nuts are loose
- wheel hub nut is loose
- axle bearing has collapsed (that would be noisy)
- front knuckle ball joint has failed
- suspension strut to knuckle bolts (two) are loose
- strut upper mounting has failed or is loose

Noisy front wheel on straight line and noise goes up when speeding

Sounds like a front wheel bearing is bad, as they usually get louder as the vehicle speed increases. Have it checked and replaced if it's bad.

Most likely it is the RH front wheel bearings. CV Joints don't usually make any noise until you turn a rather sharp corner. I would advise you to replace the bearings and seals in both front wheels if the bearings are in fact noisy. Jack up the front and spin each wheel, you'll soon hear the sound of rumbling bearings.
