Question type: Maintenance & Repair

a noise is coming from the right front side.. at first it was just making noise when veering to the left..now it more noticeable, the breaking is fine.. and the car doesn't go to one side to much when brakes are applied... could it be the sway bar?? or the tire rods??

What kind of noise? Do you have any vibration when driving? When braking? Need some more details to help.

Sounds like a bad wheel bearing, if it is replace both sides up front.

tie rods are usually quiet ,a clunk or squeak can be a sway bar bushing, a rotating sound could be tire,wheel, or bearing, and sometime a caliber

Sounds like a bearing. I replaced the entire hubs on mine the hardest part was getting the old one to break free. Overall not a hard job. Mine is an 03 and I did them last summer

Check your brake pads also. You said a slight pull? Besides the bearing maybe being bad, the pulling could be worn pads also. As long as your tearing down the wheel area, it wouldn't be much more to replace the pads if warn and resurface the rotors.
