Just need to get under it and check it out. More than likely it would be a front wheel bearing but I'm just guessing. Jack up each side and see if there is any slop in the wheels pulling back and forth on them, for the wheel bearings. Look for any torn boots on the cv shafts, if there is a torn boot then more than likely a cv joint. Any one of what you mentioned could be the problem.
