      Sounds like the sync ring is worn.
      You can try fluid to get the worn ring to have a bit more "grip" but there is no replacing worn or missing brass from the sync ring so if the oil doesn't help,...

      Wheel bearing noise will change on long, sweeping turns. Find somewhere like a big parking lot, or maybe a freeway ramp.

      Where's the oil?:eek:

      If you wiped that clean for the pic.... wow. There isn't even any between the sync hub and sleeve.
