Rear End Noise

I had a rear end rotational noise that was there at any speed, but did not go away at all unless making a sharp left turn.

Turned out to be a bad left rear wheel bearing. For those of you with a similar rotational grinding like sound at any speed that goes away when turning left, its the left rear wheel bearing. If it goes away when turning right, it would be the right rear bearing.

Just thought I would share this as my car is dead quiet now with the new bearing in place. Finally my car is in tip top mechnical shape save for the rear shocks.
