low grumbly sound while driving

On my way home with the 76... (the first 914 I've driven with the Porsche engine in it) It was making a low grumbly sound while I was driving at speed. At first I thought it was the engine... But then I went through a nice twisty canyon, and while going around curves to the left, the car was very quiet and a nice ride, but on the straight-a-ways and right hand curves, it was quite annoying and loud.

How do I tell if it is the front wheel bearing, or the rear one? (or is it possible that it is something else?)

Maybe a CV Joint? Does it sound more like coming from the front or the rear? Could be a bearing... or a loose Brake Caliper?

That could be it right there... the brakes. He (the PO) told me that he had just got the brakes done. I'll check that before I go digging into that rear wheel bearing. Thank you for pointing out the simple solutions first!

I jacked the car up this morning/afternoon (I jacked it up twice for clutch adjustments) and decided that it is indeed the left rear wheel bearing! THank you Max for the reply.
