Noise when turning...

So not to long ago I began to hear a "winding" noise, if that's the best description, not sure.. but it only happens when I turn the steering wheel to the right (that's the side the noise comes from) I can also feel the vibration from it in my gas and break petal .. I am thinking baring but not sure, any ideas?

Bearings usually make noise and get louder the faster you go, regardless of which way you turn the wheel, now turning it left or right may make it sound loud or softer. Seeing as how you only hear/feel it while turning makes me think that maybe something is rubbing. A bad axle would more or less click but not sound like a winding noise. Perhaps the tire is rubbing against some plastic in the wheel well. Like the finder or bumper liner. You can always try jacking up the front of the car and checking for looseness, A worn bearing could show itself as a slightly wobbly wheel.

Well I have heard that a lot but the problem is that they are all brand new both the brakes and rotors.. I got them in October/November.. so if that really is the problem that will suck! I got pretty good brakes and drilled and slotted rotors. I believe you because like I said that is not the first time that I have heard that but I don't want to hear that, lol! Thanks for your input!

Have you checked your p/s fluid? Sounds like power steering groan.

No I have not because it only does it when im going 40+ mph and the steering wheel has to be turned so far to the right for it to do it.
