hub bearings, lift the front 2 wheels off the groung and place the vehicle on jack stands, with the wheels off the groung have someone start the vehicle and place it in drive, when the wheels start spinning carefully place your hands on the strut spring and see if there is a vibration on the spring, check both sides, the one with the vibration is the side with a bad wheel bearing.
