If it is the front wheel bearing it is a good idea to replace both at the same time.

Sharp left puts more weight on both left tires and vise versa. It's best to jack up each wheel and check them independantly though. You must be N to check the fronts (use e-brake or blocks). E-brake off and P to check the back. If you are going to do the fronts the ball joints should be done and check the brakes. Are you a do it yourself 'er. Some special tools are required.
