Low grade grinding on left turn (I'm a Democrat)

146,000 miles, Idler arms replaced at 116,000 miles after MD Inspection required it. Replaced front wheel outer and race bearings and brakes at 135,000 because right dust cap kept coming off of the hub and there was a low grade, but noticable grinding vibration when turning left, either slightly in a wide turn, or just steering down the road. Turning to the right has no vibration or grinding. Does it sound like ball joints, or wheel bearing issue? The tires only have 10,000 miles on them.

You should hook up with the Audi owner above and compare notes…
