Default horrible sound in front end

In the last 2 months i've been hearing a really loud sound in the front end. It is like a humming sound and it goes away when i turn right and gets worse when I turn left. I knew the left side wheel bearings were bad so I got them replaced and the sound did not go away. I also replaced the right side then took it to a garage and they said the CV shaft was bad. I took it to my friend to fix the CV shaft and the noise is still there.

He said I should get my transmission fluid changed and see if the noise goes away, and he said if that doesnt fix it then the transmission is screwed and I need a new one.

The car also goes to the right very violently, I really need to get it fixed because it is just getting worse. It used to not make noise till 40 mph, then eventually it was 30 and now it does it at just 20 mph.

It's a 5 speed by the way, everything is stock.

Thanks!

nnot sure how this is transmission on turning; the car going to the right very violently sounds like alignment is needed for sure; wheel bearings i dont know too much about so not sure about that

I thought the same thing but I actually had two different people tell me they think that it is low on tramission fluid and that is making the noise. The car going to the right might be something different, but the sound does goes away when I turn right.

Um, check the trans fluid then. I could see it having to do with the differential but i'm guessing here.
