i know for sure its not the axle. wheel bearings is a possibility because i got new tires put on and they said my PASSENGER side wheel bearing is getting loose. but it sounds like it is coming from the driver side so maybe that one is aswell?

Heres a fun little tip.
"When bearings do complain the noise is usually speed-specific—the noise varies according to the speed of the spinning wheel in which it is contained. Clicks, rumbles and groans that vary with vehicle speed may indicate a bearing that has lost its ability to handle the load. Another good way to check wheel bearings without disassembly is to jack the wheel in question up off the ground, grab it from both the top and the bottom, and attempt to move it. There should be very little or no movement at all."

Easy to check the bearing. Just try to push and pull the wheel.

Just remember google is your friend.

Check the ps fluid for sure. I had a leak and didnt notice till it was making a similar noise. Kind of a groan when I would turn at low and med speeds.
