your constant velocity joint is shot. the other side is probably gone to. check the rest of the steering as well.

Answeri had the same problem with my 96 breeze. it was the ty rods in the wheels. it cost about 300.00 dollars to fix it I've seen lower ball joints cause the problem. also, make sure the font wheels are tight, that is, check the lug nuts on the wheels.

What are indications of bad front wheel bearings Are there instructions on how to replace them?

When the wheel bearing goes, you will usually hear a whining moan noise that will increase as you drive faster, and decrease as you slow down. If the noise is coming from the front, you can determine which wheel it is by steering the car left and right as you travel. Steering the car left causes the weight to shift to the opposite (right) side and vice versa. So if the noise gets louder when you turn right, the left side bearing is worn out...louder when you turn left, the right side is worn out.
