On my way home from work tonight I started hearing a groaning sound from the rear of the car. The sound intensified if I turned the wheel to the left, the sound would come from the right rear. Could it be the wheel bearings or maybe a c/v shaft issue?

Cv's usually click and pop but my daughters civic has one that hums like a card in bicycle spokes.
Bushings all good?

The bushings look good but they're old. The c/v shafts have ripped boots and need repair. There is minimal leaking from the axle seals on the differential.

Sounds like your rear diff is low on oil.

I had a CV joint start grinding years ago because I failed to replace a torn up booth mud dirt sand got in it and destroyed it. Best thing to lift it up spin the wheels and listen for that magic sound. Partially stuck caliper will also give you headaches and that kind of sound.
