Brake caliper comes to mind first, then the brake hoses, of course it could also be front bearings but you should at least hear them.

Feeling like it is going to lock up indicates, to me, it is pulling to the left. Everything tennisshoes said plus tire pressure, broken belt in tire, work suspension parts, alignment....................... Begin checking the easiest first.
