I never said anything about the groaning in turns, it only happens if i am going straight at about 29-35 and turn the wheel to the right about 1 to 2 degrees...

the slip clunk is something else, but im not super worried about it right now

It'* definately a wheel bearing, I've had several do just that. CV joints make noises in tight turns, rarely when going mostly straight.

Been there....Done that!

So when you turn your wheel slightly to the right, your putting more weight on the left front bearing (HUMMMMMMM). THAT'* the bearing that you need to replace. Don't bother replacing the right bearing.
