Sound from Suspension help?

Hi! So I have owned my 2009 fit for the past year and a half and It's been running pretty good but recently I've run into a few suspension irks and I can't pinpoint what it is exactly.

When driving at almost any speed there is a sound coming from the drivers side front wheel well. It sounds almost like the brake disc is slightly loose. Kind of like a light clacking sound.

Also recently the handling of the car has been a bit funky. It just doesn't feel right. Compared to what it was.

Another symptom is that when stopping there is like a fairly loud "whooshing" sound. It's like downshifting on a manual transmissions.

Any ideas on what it is? I am suspecting a wheel bearing.

Thank You for the help and responses!

-Matt

If a wheel bearing, sound would be louder the faster you go...

Have you checked your swaybar end links (if equipped, as you don't mention what trim level)?

A wheel bearing will increase in noise; say in a long sweeping corner when you turn one direction and get quieter taking the sweeper in the other direction.

Also to add this was the drivers side but the passenger does the same thing.

Mine made a clicking noise from the front wheels, but I found it went away when I tightened the axle nuts.
