Noise turning right

Hey all.  I've confirmed that the noise is from a shot wheel bearing on that side.  I ended up having to take it to a shop to get checked out, rains here the last few days had my driveway flooded and I didn't feel like getting dressed up in scuba gear to check it out.  ;)

The noise has since gotten worse, now having a grinding sound at wheel speed under deceleration, the wheel had a lot of play in it once it was up in the air.  I really wish it had been the CV, much cheaper and work I could easily do myself.  Oh well…

I was taking a fairly sharp right hand turn at about 45MPH, at the sharpest point in the turn I heard a roaring noise coming from what seemed to be the right side front.  I tried again on a similar turn at slower speed, nothing, no problems straight line, managed to hear it briefly on another right at similar speed.
