Might be a CV joint.

Go into a big empty parking lot and turn the wheel all the way to the left, slowly drive in a circle.
Repeat turning wheel all the way to the right.

Do you have a clicking or any feeling/noise either way?

Could be..however usually you would hear the bearing during that same type of test. The pressure on it.

Any pulsation in the brake pedal?

I go with a bad hub assembly... I replaced one on my car, and found that it had turned Blue... It was shot and had play in the bearings assembly.... $130 fixed that problem... 4 Months later the other side...

Then the 91 needed one, was making a roaring sound... Next thing you the other side went out...

Bonnies are front wheel drive by the way..

I totally agree with JR.. sounds like simple wheel bearing/hub assembly. All one part.
