Re: vibration when turning left?

Are you sure the wheels are balanced well (not just "good 'nuff")?  Are
they "high speed" balanced? If so, you might want to have an "on car"
wheel balancing done before you try to change a wheel bearing.  Also you
might want to check your tire pressure first. 

IMHO, the fact that it occured after getting new tires is a big clue
towards the tires & associated bits. It's possible that the tire was
crushed or has an internal defect that might cause the vibration...
