Welcome to the forum, alby1a. It's impossible to determine which side is noisy by normal methods. It can sound like the noise is coming from the left side, and it can get quiet when turning slightly left, ( that always worked with older Chryslers with the pressed-in bearings), but it can be the tight one that's bad. The only way to tell for sure is to hoist it off the ground, run it in gear, and listen with a stethoscope next to each bearing.
The good news is if you have a bolt-on style bearing, the old left one can be put on the right side.
