My car is making a rubbing sound that gets louder going around left turns. This appears to be coming from the passenger side front tire. It doesn't appear to be effecting performance at all, it's just making a noise. It started this morning as I was coming to work.

Thanks

Could it be a CV Shaft going bad?

It very well could be, but I have seen more tires and wheel bearing go bad before a cv shaft

The tires are about two years old, and have had about 20000 miles put on them. How would I go about checking to see if it is the bearing and if it is how do I replace it?

You need to jack the vehicle up and see if the bearing is loose. Sometimes that wont even tell you. Its hard for me to tell you thats the problem, but they are easy to fix if you know what your doing. I suggest taking it to a shop and see what they say when they drive it.
