rear end howl. sounds like a bad bearing, but it isn't

I'm trying to diagnose an issue that I have been dealing with for a while now. I drive an 07 Yaris which emits a loud howling noise from the left rear tire. This noise becomes noticeable around 40 mph, and gets louder as the vehicle speed increases. When I turn the wheel to the right, the noise will go away, but when I turn it to the left it becomes worse. I suspected the bearings were bad, so I put new ones in, but that did not lead to any improvements. I replaced the tires, coil springs and shocks, but still no luck. I'm now suspecting an alignment issue, but I have read that these cars can only be adjusted with shims. I have the printout from my most recent alignment which was done when the noise was still a problem. The left rear lists -1 camber and .11 toe. the right is -.8 camber and .2 for the toe. does this seem far enough out of spec that it would cause this type of problem? I'm at a loss. any help would be appreciated.

How are the front tires and the bearings in the front of the car? The fact that it makes noise when you turn the wheels Might indicate that

Good luck and tell us what happens!
