Icon9 I am hearing a noise in my wheels need help

Hello I have a 1994 Ford Ranger 4.0 4X4. Anyways lately I been hearing a "wooaah wooaah wooaah" sound whenever I go around curves, especially sharp curves. Sounds louder on curves that turn left. Do I need wheel bearings or something? I want to make sure before I fix the wrong thing. Anybody know what this is? Thanks a bunch to whoever can help me.

prolly need whole new wheel hub. check break setup., if u have acxces to lift jack it up and put it in 4w. and see if it sounds,, if not then its not drivetrain or axles n such its the hub, cause its the road pressure causing it not just moving... ya kno? good luck

you can also check wheel bearings by lifted the front tires off the ground and then put your hands at 12 and 6 on the tire and rock back and forth and there should be no movement.
