1998 mercury sable has something slipping when you turn left is the cv joint bas or is it something else

How does it feel like slipping ? Like the tires slipping on a wet road ?
Does the car slide around ?
Usually a cv joint or hub bearing will make a noise when failing.

When I turn left after slowing down from a highway speed my car makes a grinding noise. what do you think it is?

Probably need new brake pads-look through the wheel openings to see if the surface of the rotor is getting gouged by pads that have run down-you may have to remove the wheels to see since it might be an inside pad.

In a 1998 Sable when I turn left there is a tinging noise. the boots are not cracked and I just replaced the right front wheel bearing. What is that noise?

just because the boots are not cracked does not mean the cv joints are not bad get in an large open area like empty parking lot turn steering wheel all the way left place light pressure on brake pedal and accelerate do you hear a clanking popping sound if so bad cv joint may want to recheck all previuos repairs for loose bolts etc..this vehicle has sway bar end links that like to create noise at unusual times but generally over bumps i am a mechanic and see alot of defective new parts out the box so don,t dismiss a part because it,s new Qaulity control is not what it seems to be anymore repost if this doesnt help maybe more info if possible

Mercury Sable makes noise when turning left and backing in? It sounds like a grinding noise.

Sounds like a CV (Constant Velocity) joint. I can't completely solve this for you, but you can re-post with the CV problem. The sound - grinding and or popping - should be coming from only one side of the car - but it could be the inner or outer CV joint on that side. Check the rubber boots around the joints - they are located on each end of the drive shaft on the transaxle. If you have a torn boot, that will probably indicate which joint is bad.
