Default Steering wheel vibrating and whirring noise turning slightly right but not left

Hey guys, in my 2011 wrx hatchback I just had the passenger side steering rack bushing replaced. I got it aligned and now when I turn the steering wheel slightly to the right and makes a whirring noise noticeable above 35mph and now the steering wheel started to slightly vibrate a little bit... could it be another bushing? It has a remanufactured steering rack. Could it be a driver side wheel bearing? Wont be able to get it into a shop until after the new year so hopefully you guys could give me some troubleshooting ideas!

Check the balljoint. If they messed with the rack, there is a ball joint on the end. Not sure if they had to separate it, but who knows.

The whirring noise you describe could certainly be the wheel bearing. Jack both fronts up, remove the wheel, check for wobble and then spin the offending hub by hand. Should be some resistance, but noise is a bad sign. Might also be the brakes pulsing and rubbing. Also check the dust shield or something rubbing.
