A squealing noise would mean the power steering pump.

It might be a wheel bearing.

Growling is usually low power steering fluid. A clunking is a CV joint, and U-Joints have nothing to do with turning

power steering fluid was checked and it was good.

Ooooh, that's a whole 'nother can of worms that could be so many things. I defer to Full_of_Regrets, the man knows what he is talking about and please forgive me it's late and I'm getting weary-eyed

The turning AND growling is what makes me think it might be a wheel bearing. Good luck!

One final thought. If it makes that noise when turning the wheel while the car is not moving then it could be the power steering. If it is quiet when turning and not moving then I suspect the bearings. Jack up the car and wiggle the front wheels side to side and top to bottom and if you feel play then the bearings have a problem.

A left turn would mostly likely mean the right front wheel bearing if it is that at all.
