Question about 2009 Hyundai Elantra
I thought maybe power steering issue, but there is no loss of power or whining noise, more of a thump thump thump thump until the wheels straighten out again. Doesn't sound like any brake noise I have ever heard, though these are original brakes and tires.
Sounds like wheel bearings-1st
but hopefully your front disc need turning, or replaced.
check wheel bearings by jacking up the front end "CAREFULLY" WITH
JACK STANDS & wiggle tires,if you get more than a 1/4'' slack on 1 or the other, than it's shot. Best to replace both sides. "GOOD LUCK'' &

You have a bad front wheel bearing on the left side because you say when you turn right the noise goes away, because when you turn right the suspension lifts up on the opposite side and releives some weight on the bearing causing it to quiet down. No it is NOT a DIY repair unless you have some pretty extensive tools. the quickest easiest and least expensive way to fix this is to go to a wrecking yard and buy a steering knuckle for the left. it will have a wheel bearing already pressed into it and all you have to do is replace the whole thing and you are done. do not open any brake lines or hoses to do this job just gently press the brake caliper piston back about 1/2" so it will fit over the brake pads when you reinstall.
please rate this advice a fixya if you feel I have provided excellent service.

check to make sure you dont have something loose in the trunk or under your seats thats rolling around also check your brakes your rotors may be bad or you have a weak caliper.

have you had your under car checked lately ???
take it to local garae get an oil change since they are cheep
once car up in the air tell him the problem they will find it probably and you can call arround for estaments or the parts tell him to look at the bushings they usualy thump if it is a twang then start looking at the springs but they will usualy only twand in turns lock to lock '
also if getting when going over bumps have them look at strut bushings
