Without hearing the noise, my guess is wheel bearing or (possibly) CV
joint. Wheel bearings can take a long time to die, usually, and get
progressively noisier as they go until they roar pretty loudly. CV
joints usually make a rapid clunking noise in very tight low-speed turns
when they start to go bad.

The wheel bearing on the '90 is a real PITA to change. Consider having
it done if that's what the problem is.

Does the noise happen only when turning in ONE direction?

have you changed the disc or caliper recently? there's a different
thickness in disks between 89 & 90, [89 is skinnier] and the caliper
needs to be correct to accommodate. if there's an incorrect caliper
relative to the disk, you'll hear a scraping noise when you corner. or
it's just a bearing. time to inspect.
