I had the same thing on my Bonne. Assumed it was the left because of the noise changing when turning the wheel. Put one on the left front, no change. Put the one I took off on the right front, no more noise.

If it happens on right turns and straight driving. the drivers cv/ half shaft id shot. sence the weight is shifted to that side when turning right. just because the boot are not ripped or torn doesn't mean they are in working order (rusted/binding/no grease). plus when the cv shaft is out of car, push and check the gear sticking out of transmission for a bad trans bearing. THIS GOES FOR ALL WHO HEAR/FEEL NOISE AND VIBRATION ON ACCELERATION AND HARD RIGHT AND OR LEFT TURNING.

If a shop sold you a new bearing and installed it and the bill came to $60.00, that'* the first thing I would suspect.
