Vibration after repair

Okay, I just helped replace the drivers side hub assembly on my brother-in-laws 04 Excursion. It is 4x4, has front ABS and auto hubs. We replaced all the seals and put in a new U-joint since we had it all apart. The vibration started after he drove it on the highway for about 30 min. It only made the noise/vibration when turning left and in drive. Now it makes the vibration/noise when turning right or left and in drive, not in reverse. Any ideas???

I would check for anything that got loose and do a re-torque on everything. if that doesnt get it perhaps the other side is now complaining out of neglect?
so you will get someone with more experience on these than I

Bump, My 03 excursion has a slight vibration and roar on left curves, it doesn't do it on right hand curves. I thought it may need new wheel bearing assemblies too? Anybody with more experience have anything to add.

Classic symptom of a failing unit wheel bearing.

THANKS, NYC!!! Not to derail the thread, but do you have any recommendations on an upgrade for the 4x4 auto hubs too. Seems like I've read somewhere that warn assemblies are a little less expensive than the OEM???

The warn hubs will fit the model years that have leaf springs on the front axle.
