Dizzy front end noise

hello i've got a thump thump thump noise when i'm driving my car. now it only happens when i'm turning or steering left or right.
also it starts or at least i can hear it once i reach about 35mph and gets louder as i go faster. now i've put new tires on and that didn't help( needed tires anyway) also i had both cv axles replaced and after leaving the garage it happenedv still!! i drove back and now they say both front wheel bearings are bad. does it sound like that is the problem or should i look elsewhere?

thanks
Nelson

does it sound rhythmic or just a random no pattern noise. if the noise is random sounding without rhythm at front and appears at low speeds check the engine mounts or the suspension. in 2 occasisns it was my upper engine mount 1st later it was a worn ball joint lost its grease. by then the steering wheel was hard to turn and doessn't return easily to neutral/straight position when i let go of the wheel after a turn. we usually hear the noise at low speeds because there is still not enough noise generated by the car to mask the thump. if it is rhythmic and seems to speed up while you drive faster, do look at the wheel bearings or CV. happened in my wife's legend. Goodluck man
