If the front wheel bearings were not checked to see if any of the front wheel bearing assemblies are at fault this can cause this fault here.I have seen the wheel bearing assembly fail causing this type of noise here.In most cases this will need checked with the vehicle on a hoist listening to the noise with an automotive stethoscope listening to see which one is noisier when the wheel is spinning.This is a common issue.
If this has already been checked and found o.k. let me know so we can continue.

Is this a front wheel drive model with axles in the front or awd?
O.k.,were the axles inspected to see if any of the axle joints/cv joints were failing at all.I have seen the axle joints cause this noise.One other component I have seen cause this noise is the output bearing in the output shafts for the axles.These will start to fail causing this noise here.If these have not been checked into yet this would be my next step to see if any of these are the cause here.
