I have an 05 also, mine has 91k on it, it recently started doing the same thing yours is. I notice it when I slow down around 30mph. I hope it's not a wheel bearing.

Growling

Check the easy stuff first, brake pads, rotors, u-joints etc.. Then if it were mine, i would jack up each side and see if you have any movement in your wheel bearings. With it jacked up, grab the top and bottom of your tire and push back and forth to see how much play you have. It helps to have a second set of hands and eyes when doing this. It's a place to start, let us know what you find and we can go from there.

Run your hand around the tire and see if there is any cupping on the edges. An easy quick check to see if it is tires is to rotate the front to the rear. If the noise moves to the rear too then it's the tires!

Noise

Possibly a tire out of balance, or a u-joint going bad.
Also, make sure our front hubs are unlocked. sometimes a front drive shaft spinning can cause the noises you are describing.
