Whirring noise and vibration when braking

I have the whirring wheel noise when turning and also vibration when semi braking heavily. The steering wheel doesn't shake. I have replaced the front lower control arm bushings and replaced pads and rotors all the way around.

Could it need new front control arms?
(Ball joints in the middle beingshot)

Or perhaps trailing arm bushings?
The back end doesn't feel loose at all tho.

Yes the bearings don't make any noise at all hen you freely spin the wheel. That can cause a whirring noise. But would it cause a shake while braking?
