Bad CV shaft, bad bearing, or maybe the brake rotor warped or other?
I would carefully inspect them all. I had one set of aftermarket
front pads on my taurus that were made so the hung over the outside
of the rotor. As they wore, they wore a lip in the edge of the pad
and caused some strange vibration/noise.
I also had a bubble in a tire once that cause some strange noise
at higher speeds.
