CHEVY HUMMING SOUND IN FRONT END OF CAR

2000 Chevrolet Malibu

Steering problem
2000 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 136000 miles

I have a 2000 Chevy Malibut 4 door and it has a loud humming sound in the front end. It seems to get worse when I turn the steering wheel to the left.

Breaks or bearings
breaks 5%chance
bearing 95% chance

if the sound goes away or gets lower when you turn the wheel in the opposite direction it is the bearings. Also check the ball joint (jack the car up and put a pipe under the wheel and see if you hear a click when bouncing the pipe up)
