They are the same thing. Two things I would do,
One, jack up the front wheels and spin them and see if they spin freely. After that hold one tire and spin the other one. Now push/pull the tire lightly and see if there is any play back and forth. Either this is a suspension problem or a drive train problem.
Second, like I said before push the front end up and down and have someone else try and pin point the noise.
This could be a bad wheel bearing or something along the line of the axle, or even your transfer case. Let me know after you do this and we can go from there.
