More than likely it is one or both wheel bearings going bad, or one of the axle cv joints wearing out. It could also me a defective steel belt inside one of the tires, and lastly it could be that if the tread design on the tires are a directional tread, they have mounted the tires backwards on the wheels. I have seen this occur more than you could imagine! Good luck, let me know.

Very helpful. Don't have the tools to complete this. Any idea what a shop would charge to change the wheel bearings and maybe the axle cv joints?

I really couldn't say since I do not work in the industry. I am third generation mechanic, and really only work on my own vehicles(5 of them) and other relatives. I get so mad at the outrageous prices charged these days by shops, for both labor AND the mark up on parts. I do all my own work, both minor and major, including engine rebuilding and transmission swap outs, then go to a shop only for the jobs I cannot do because of lack of equipment or tools. My best guess in the current market would be between $400 to $900 or more, low end being bearings and high end being the axles and bearings, and that would include the alignment check & adjustment after the repairs, depending on your location. These are best guest estimates for the Danbury CT/Westchester County NY areas. My cost would be more like $250 for parts then about $75 for an alignment afterwards. I suggest you do a google search for a front end specialist shop in your area, or try a Firestone tire dealership.

I also left out that it could also be a tie-rod end or control arm ball joint causing it as well. You can get it narrowed down very quickly with a front end inspection at a reputable tire dealership like Firestone for example, and then they can give you an exact cost, & if you do the work, the diagnostic charge would count in the repair price.
