hi, this sounds like track rod ends have gone this is for the steering and causes the tyre to where in one point these are cheap to buy and easy to fit but you will need to get the tracking set after replacing this part as it needs to be set to stop your tire wearing uneven the noise your getting will be from the tire on the road as it will be forcing the tire to run uneven so getting this checked would be my first choice.
Hope this is some help toy you let me know how you get on or if you have any questions ok

If your turning your car to the right when it make the noise or the Left Listen and find out because which ever way the noise is loudest usually meaning that is the side going bad, Thats the rule Usually some cars and trucks have fronts and rear bearings, But I think it is a wheel bearing, Have a mechanic or a friend that may turn some wrench's Check it out for you. Hope that helps you out. :))

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.

Could be the lower control are bushing, it apparently is an issue with that model year. Big bucks (850 CDN$) to fix as the 'whole' front end needs to be partially dropped and both should be done at the same time. A mechanic should be able to see if that is a problem while the car is on the hoist. The mechanic should be able to point to the area or point where the contact is being made. Mine lasted till 100,000 km, I heard it on the second hand test drive ( at 90,00 km) and asked a buddy ( a Toyota Master Mechanic) about it and he made me aware of it; i bought the car anyways.
