Ball joints, tie rod ends both come to mind.
Might be good to check the CV joints in the axle on that side, although I doubt they would contribute, but the grinding is a concern. Usually a CV joint will start making popping noises in tight turns, like circles in a parking lot.
Alright so I spent a few minutes inspecting the tie rods again and while the rubbers look good and I cannot move them if I shake them, I can easily rotate them by hand.... Will be replacing both....
On another note, the howling noise is still present and like stated earlier, the sound increases the faster I go.... It actually reminds me on when I had an SUV with mud terrain tires and the tires were starting to wear.... wa wa wa wa wa...........
I think the front end shaking and the wa wa wa noise are unrelated at this point.
The howling noise that changes with speed is typically a problem with tires or wheel bearings. Rotate the tires front/rear and see if the noise moves too. If it does then take a closer look at the tires.
Also, you changed the front left wheel bearing, but the RH bearing might be on its way out as well. Raise the front of the car and spin the RH front wheel and listen for noise. You can also hold the coil spring while doing this and sometimes "feel" the vibration from a bad wheel bearing. If unsure, take the axle out of the bearing and rotate the wheel hub back and forth while pushing in on it. It should feel smooth and you shouldn't hear any noise. Bad wheel bearings will feel "gritty" and may have in/out play you can detect.
