wheel bearing?

I have a problem on my 1994 Buick Lasabre. I have a lot of vibration in the car from 45 mph and up. It gets worse when I hit the brakes. The vibration isn't coming through the steering wheel though so I don't think its a broken tire belt. The tires look fine too, from the outside anyway. Could it be a wheel bearing? The vibration is coming from the front left tire. I want to be sure because I can't buy just the bearings, from a parts store anyhow. Any suggestions are welcome.

Could be wheel bearing, brake caliper, rotor, CV joint, any number of things. Jack it up and see if the whole wheel assembly is loose. Then take the wheel off and look at the brakes etc.
