noise when turning left...

I am getting a moaning noise from the right front when im turning left. I suspected a bad wheel bearing. I replaced upper and lower ball joints on both sides and replaced both front hub assemblys. Noise is still there....dont really know where to go from here. suggestions??

I had a similar noise. Replaced the ball joints that had rusted solid, pulled the hubs and found one leaking grease and the other with a bad spot. Went for a test drive thinking I had solved it and it turned out to be a bushing on one of the front shocks.

Jack the truck up undo the snap rig on the locking hub pull the hub out (just the locking portion) and spin the wheel see if its the hub because my 01 does the same thing the internals of my locking hub are shot hope it helps

Im not sure that would work, it only makes the noise when it has a side load on it. if Im making a slow left turn in a driveway or something its fine. I has to be a sweeping turn with a pretty decent side load if you know what I mean.

Mine just started making a grinding noise when I'm turning left also, but I have to be accelerating into the turn for it to make that noise. I imagine this type of issue would be hard to diagnose.
