Default Vibration

Just found your forum and read through some of the threads. Great site!!!! Anyway, here'* the deal. I have a vibration in the front end when I turn right and accelerate. Not left, just right. Not coasting, just accelerating. Also have a roaring noise in front end. Replaced the wheel bearings but no help. Thinking it may be a CV joint but no click. Any ideas?

Sounds like a bad CV joint. How do the boots look? Can you see anything sprayed around the boot that looks like grease?

What year and car is this on?

Then your going to want to jack up the front end and look for any play. Check the ball joint on the lower control arm as well.
