Sounds (!) like a wheel-bearing to me,too -- except that I didn't get
the variation with steering angle when mine went last month.
It's actually not *that* difficult a job (I did mine myself for
well under $100), so if you decide to go that route, I could
give you some tips, as could a lot of people on the list. On the
other hand, it certainly isn't trivial.
