Winding Sound When Brakes Applied/Making Right Turn

I own a 91 GMC Sierra pick up. Before working on my truck today, I would get a bit of a slight shake and a winding sound when applying brakes. Everyone was telling me it was most likely because the rotor(s) was/were going bad. I bought 2 new rotors and installed them with new pads today. I no longer have the shake when I apply the brakes, but still have the winding sound. I get the winding sound (still and before installing the new rotors) when I make a right turn too. I can also create the sound if I turn my wheels left and right slightly as I drive down the road (the wind sound happening with the slight right turn). Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?

Thank you

Sounds like the power steering rack. Have you checked the fluid level?

did you put new brake pads on with the new rotors? If not it may be the wear sensors on the old pads.

It was the outside bearings in the right front rotor. They looked good to me when I cleaned and re-packed them, but apparently they were messed up. After buying and installing new ones, no more annoying sound.

Thanks for the responses.
