Cv joint or bearing?

When making a left hand turn i can feel a vibration coming from the right rear of the car. It only happens when i am on the throttle in the turn or corner. Am I looking at a wheel bearing failing or maybe a CV joint? I don't see any rips on the CV boots. Thanks for your comments in advance.

When my rear bearing was failing it was a constant audible wob wob wob. Louder and faster on freeway. Not really felt, noisy any time the car was moving.

Sounds like a wheel bearing. Get it up in the air and start rolling the wheel.

OK guys i will get it up in the air tomorrow. I can definitely feel like a washboard vibration when i give it gas making a left turn. I can't really hear any noise.

My rear wheel bearing was all noise, no vibration. I'm guessing CV.

I'll bet a RMS plus free shipping it's a CV.
