Umm,
without looking...first port of call is wheel bearing, after that its wheel alignment.

Cheers

Replace.
You've gone to all the trouble to remove wheels, clean, etc. For a very small extra cost you can fit new bearings and don't have to worry anymore.

Re: turn left apply brake Hummmmm.....

What kind of noise does it actually make?
Have you tried jacking up the car and turning the wheel by hand to see where the noise is coming from?
