Front driver side "grinding"

Jan 17, 2007
Hi all. I have an 01 Landcruiser wtih a noticable "drone" (noise/slight vibration) when I turn to the right, no sound when I turn left. So figured it's time to replace wheel bearings/races, and even CV axle seeing the truck has 265k miles. I replaced bearing/races and CV axle, all re-assembled, and still have the same "drone", so I'm stumped. Anyone else experience this before? Would the passenger side bearing/CV axle be the culprit when I turn right? Figured turning right loads the drivers side, not passenger side.

Also, Is there a service-able bearing in the front transfer case/drive? Can't find a bearing part# or diagram to depict what i may need to replace or service. Any help would be appreciated
