Ok..on my RX...right front is where it seems to come from..

Upon turning right at speed...I hear a grinding/roaring sound....go stright...and its just a dull grinding...turn left, and it turns into a....higher pitched "tire whine" type sound.

I am thinking wheel bearing....how to tell if it is that? Its not loose up int he air, and doesnt make noice when turned by hand unlike that 2.5 RS i had a LR WB go out on...

Could the axle nut have backed off a tad?

ANy other ideas? No, the wheel is on tight...LOL...i checked that already.

Sounds like a wheel bearing on the way out to me. My friend Erik's last car(98 Grand Am GT) made a sound like that for about a week before he took it to a mechanic and you know what the mechanic said. He said,"That'll be about $640." I almost passed out. Stupid wheel bearings, always giving up ad stuff.:grin:

Ditto on that, but check to make sure all your castle nuts are tight before delving into the world of replacing wheel bearings.
