1999 Plymouth Breeze noise.

I have a 99 Plymouth Breeze. It has a grinding noise. The noise itself gets loudest at around 45 mph coming and going +/- speed. Recentley I noticed if I steer slightly to the right the noise go away. What could this be? What would be the best bet?

Could be an Off-side front wheel bearing......the noise wouldn't necessarily completely disappear when steering slightly in this direction, but it would be less noisy due to less weight being on this side of the car....

that is what happens. i was guessing it would be the wheel bearing, the car has 100k on it so it would make pretty good sense. is there a write up on how-to r/r these bearings on this particular car?
