Question: vibration when turning LEFT only

this is an AWD wagon, just replaced all 4 wheel bearings and front c/v axles. When turning left at any speed I get a strong virbration seeming to come from the right side of vehicle. It stops shaking when going straight or turning right. What am I missing here?

When you turn left you are loading up the right side of the car which makes any problem on the right side more obvious. I would be checking tire wear (turning one way will change the contact patch), the ball joints, and bushings on the right. Usually it is an axle that gets worse while turning but you said you just replaced them.
