Default Vibration when turning under 15 MPH

98 V70XC, 154K. So I figured that after all the work I did over the past few months I would have gotten rid of this issue, but it's still there. When I turn while going around 15 mph, I'll get a vibration and a noticeable thumping sound from the driver's side. I'll get this 100% of the time while turning to the left and about 25% of the time turning to the right. Over the past 6 months it's gotten new CV axles, new HD stabilizer end links, new control arms, new brake pads, calipers, and rotors, and a whole bunch of non suspension related items. I've checked the strut mount bearings and they're fine (no play when you try to turn them), and I've done the wheel jiggle test and there's no play up and down or left and right. If I hit the brakes while turning, it seems to go away, but then it comes back as soon as I take the pressure off the brake pedal. The only things I can think of are the wheel bearings or the front motor mount. I was thinking the wheel bearing on the driver's side, but today I had my hand on the shifter and I could feel the vibration through that so now I'm leaning towards the motor mount. Any suggestions? I'm deploying in June and would like to get this solved before I go, so i need to get working on it soon.
