I have a noise in my car when turning the steering will to lock in curve, only in a hilly road, slope of a garage and so, but never in a flat surface. The sounds come from the front of the car and the noise is like gronk...gronk...gronk...

I have to check tire rubbing. I think that the wheel bearing sounds continously, not only when turning the steering wheel. I would think more of CV joints.

Wheel bearings tend to make less noise when loaded, more noise when unloaded. Turning the car left or right will tend to uncover a problem with a wheel bearing on the opposite side.

I also think that uphill it doesnt make it worse if it will be the wheel bearings.

Probably true, but since we don't know where the noise is coming from or what it sounds like, I think everyone is just throwing out things that make noise. :)

I had a bad wheel bearing, but I was unable to determine what side it was on even when I drove on curvy roads. It wasn't until I jacked up one side of the car and ran it in gear did the location of the noise become obvious.

On my Durango, my wheel bearing was make a little noise going striaght at highway speeds, but when turning, it became apparent something was really wrong. (don't know on the saab, but the durango was less than $100 from rockauto and an hour or two of work).
