It's fairly simple:

JeepsLimited.com - D30 Axle Shaft/Wheel Bearing Removal and Replacement (WJ)

Most auto stores charge ~$100 or less after you bring back the old shaft.

The only things that would make a whinging noise at a consistant speed in that area are the wheel bearing and the CV joint. If you're sure it's coming from the passenger side, then it's more than likely the CV since you replaced the wheel bearing already.

If it sounds like it's coming from the front generally, then it could be a bearing in the diff.

Also, it could be a bad tire. Does it make the noise after you rotate the tires?
