Question about Cars & Trucks
It sounds to me like it is your left front wheel bearing. the best way to check this is to raise both wheels and spin them by hand there will be some noise from the pads rubbing the discs but the side with the bearing gone will be noisiest.you can replace just the bearing.I hope you find this helpful

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

It may be your alignment but if it is wheel bearings jack up the front of the vehicle and try to rock or shake the wheels by hand if there is play or it does move it is your wheel bearings

SOURCE: bearings or cv joint?
For quickly ruling out the CV Joint, in a parking lot, turn one way in a sharp circle, then the other way circle sharply. A clicking sound is indicative of a bad c/v joint or 1/2 shaft.
Humming while in motion (most of times it will only occur during a specific speed range - over a certain speed goes away) says a wheel bearing is shot.
Normally you should replace both at the same time... however you can check with a laser temp gauge each front hub after driving. The hotter one is bad - or a less scientific approach is to swerve going down the road. and listen for an decrease in noise going in one diretcion over the other.
If you are turning the steering wheel right, and the noise goes away, the right bearing is bad and vice versa.

SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds
You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.
