Sounds like a wheel bearing to me.

Things that make you go hmmm...

"The" wheel bearing?  Maybe it's the other one?

Lessee, if you turn right, the load on the left bearing 
increases, and load on the right one decreases.  Since you 
replaced the right one, I'd try the left one, since it's getting 
more of a workout during right turns than the right one.

I remember use discussing this on the list before, is that the 
way it works, or do I have it backwards?
