While taking a gradual left curve I feel a vibration or ticking through the steering wheel but not on a right curve, also a slight grinding or rubbing noise while going slow(e.G. Through a drive through or turning into a drive way) started about 2 weeks ago but getting more noticeable now.
Do you
have the same problem?

Inspect the CV axle boots for rips/tears. If OK, then try this:

Raise car, put on stands. Grasp tire and push/pull both horizontally and vertically. Any movement would indicate wheel bearing, ball joint, tie rods, control arm/bushings

Hi sampala. Welcome

This sounds like you have a bearing hub going out I would lift the car in the front to roll each wheel to find the bearing that is out here is how you can replace the hub in the diagram below. Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what happens. Caradiodoc
