Had this sound usually when turning left, but does not occur all the time. have replaced the lower control arm, which was worn and I thought was the problem, but no such luck.

the wheel bearing and drive shaft are all good so just cannot work out where the noise is coming from. sometimes it is quite loud.

Would appreciate any comments ideas.

Hi Craig.
Sorry for the delay in giving some input.
Hey it's really hard to say what it is without road testing it. Squeeks, clunky, grinding, crunching noises etc etc are sometimes different to what it is actually doing.
Dry ball joints, tie rod ends, stabilizer bar bushes, strut swivels, caliper slides, loose wheel nuts, wheel bearings, CV joints, cracks in the strut towers, original springs or lowered to name a few.
Sorry but you may have to get it road tested.
Come back and let us know if you can though.
All the best.

Could also be upper or lower torque strut,
these are often referred to as upper and lower engine mounts,
it's not uncommon for them to wear out and can be relatively easily visually checked.
Driver's side, and if worn or damaged will make a crack or clunk type of noise on left turns or hard acceleration / gear changes.
