Daily Driver issues

First off, its a 1998 Cavalier. Ive tried to figure this out before with no avail. I really dont want to throw all kinds of parts at this car, but here it goes. Im getting a thump from my passenger side. Ive replaced the drivers side wheel bearing, passenger is 2 years old, axles appear to be ok, and new front tires. You can hear it at 25mph and increases with speed. Turn hard to the left, no change, hard to the right, no change. You put the car in park, you can feel a vibration in the brake pedal, but in drive and neutral its ok. Theres no pull when you brake, and the car drives straight. Rear tires are about 15k old and are off brand, didnt get them balanced though.

Having a trailer hitch and everything this car is pretty nice to have to throw my bike rack & bike on it and go, I just want it to be safe as possible when I go on long trips.

that's exactly what my 1988 Civic did when it had a broken motor mount.
