Default Squeal from front left tire while driving slow

I just noticed this squealing noise from the front left side tire area while driving slow or turning right..i changed my front brakes and rotors b/c it was that time with the same results. When im drving slow you can hear the squeal, but when you take that right hand turn you hear it alot more. Whats weird about this when i turn left it goes away even if im driving slow. If you have some input i would appreciate it.

Jack up the front side, put a jack stand in place. remove the left tire and give a close look at the barring. Check for any play. Look to see if it'* loose or dry. Did it start out with a slight cheep cheep cheep? Can you feel any grinding at all? What year is your car, and what city are you located in?

Thanks alot for you reply and yes as a matter of fact it did start out like you descrinbed and as i put in the title. Sounds like i will pulling the hub bolt off and replacing the bearing..Do i need a puller to get that out, do you know? By the way i have a 2001 SE bonneville and its located in virginia beach, va. Like before i appreciate the input on this. I will have to wait till the weekend to touch with the short days of light and my work.
