How do I find which bearing is bad
Is there a trouble shooting way or a specific method to finding out which wheel bearing is bad ?

Yes there is, when you turn left it loads up the right side when you turn right it loads up the left side, so take a left and right turn, if its louder when turning left it's on the right and if it's louder when turning right is on the left. Then when you figure or what side it's on jack that side up and shake the wheel. One hand on top of wheel one on bottom and try to move it back and forth. So push on top of wheel and pull on bottom, and do that repetitively. If there's movement it's bad. there shouldn't be any moment.
