Most likely it's the outer CV joint making the noise. Left or right the outer joint turns with the wheel. When they are bad turning puts more of a load on the joint. The only other slight possibility is a bad wheel bearing. I doubt it's the bearing because it started after you replaced the axle. When the axle is replaced rotate the brake rotor hub by hand to see if it's noisy. Do this when the axle is removed. Just grab the wheel lug nut studs and give it a spin. If it feels and sounds OK the wheel bearing should be OK.

Thanks again, Honda-Man
