Grinding when under load on RH Turns...

This past weekend at the track I was experiencing a grinding/vibration in RH corners, especially in RH corners with alot of load on the LR.

I didn't hear anything (of course my car is freaking LOUD), it was more that I could feel it grinding, and I could sort of feel the resistance. It would get worse as a session progressed, or once things got warmed up.

I'm guessing it's the LR wheel bearing.

We rebuilt the left side (drivers) axle at the track with new CV joints/boots, grease, etc. but it made no difference.

Any other thoughts? Could it be the diff? I can't imagine the DIFF would cause a grinding feel in RH corners??? or could it???

Any thoughts???

FYI - in the pits, weaving back and forth, if its doing it at all, you can barely notice it. I didn't really notice it in the pits or going down the street at say 25mph weaving back/forth...
