I would replace the wheel bearing assembly.

If there is no grease coming out of the CV joint, then yes probably the wheel bearing, but it will come as an hub assembly. When tearing it apart chances are you will see rust on the spline of the drive axle. One thing from experience is the noise can be elusive, on mine I thought it was the right side making the noise, but it ended up being the left side. I say this because if you see the rust on the splines, chances are that is the one that is bad.
