CV joints are gone, and need to bew replaced, then must do a front end alignment. Lug nuts on the tire could be loose and tire is wobbling when going straight. Turning left or right would keep the wheel from wobbling and the sound would stop. Make sure all nuts are secure. I've had front wheel bearings fail just like that.Replaced CV joint and it wasn't needed.
