The Driver front side is making a loud humming noise while driving even if coasting in neutral and gets louder when turning left. Could it be the trans axle or drive axle?

Noisy front wheel bearing. The problem is with this pressed-in style, you can't always tell which side it is by where it sounds like it's coming from. To be sure, run it in gear on a hoist, then listen next to each one with a stethoscope. One will be much louder. You can also spin a tire slowly by hand while feeling for the vibration in the coil spring.
