Hello and thanks for using

Noises can be difficult to diagnose through this kind of format but we will try.

Does the noise change when turning or making quick steering maneuvers like when changing lanes?

What speeds does the noise start at.

Starts as i start to accelerate, doesnt seem to alter or change when turning or changing lanes just accelerating and decelerating

Ok looks like only one bearing was replaced so the problem may be with the other side or it can be a rear bearing. It even could be the differential or a tire. We can rotate the tires front to back to see if the noise travels which will indicate a tire noise. Let me know.
