90 Civic Grinding Noise

I have a 1990 Honda Civic DX Hatchback 305,000km. We recently replace the right front wheel bearing and since then a loud grinding noise has developed in the right front while turning left. It didn't make the sound right away but it started about a day after replacing the bearing. Since the car is high milage and the front end assembly is completly origional, I think it may be time for an overhaul. But any ideas on what the noise may be?

Do you
have the same problem?

No the boots are fine. It turns out the guy who put the bearing in really messed up somehow and now the wheel hums louder than ever. Also the grinding noise is coming from the hub which is also now lose. I got a re-fund and i'm taking it to the work shop tomorrow to give it a go. But none the less problem solved. Thanks for the advice tho. Much appriciated.
