Ok first is first, if a wheel balance is still not curing the problem i would try to get further advise from a suspension/tyre place.
I have had many experience with wheel balancing. I would try to get a conventional off the car wheel balance and watch the guy do thework make sure that when the tyre is rotated that the computer returns 0 and 0.
Also at times rotating the tyres can cause an inital shake as the tyre wear is different from front to back.
You say your car is pulling to the left thats an alignment problem as well.
Inregards to front wheel bearings all cars need that done, ie repack and tighten every 50k or usually done with a brake pad/rotor change.
I realise it it costign you abit but owning and maintaining a car in A1 condition does cost $$$.
