Wheel bearings or ?

My 2002 SE has 72000 miles. I just had major brake work done (brakes, new rotors, new rear cylinders) as well as new left wheel bearings (front and rear). It has started making a rapid thumping noise whenever I brake and turn (either right or left) at the same time. Is it likely that the remaining bearings need replacing or something worse? Also, since my brake / bearing work was done, the ABS light in the dash stays on. Any clue what happened there?

As for the ABS light, you might have gotten non-abs bearings. I'm told that all the new bearings come with the abs ring though.
You might want to replace your ABS sensors soo.

And, bearings should be rpelaced as a pair. It's beast.

I recently did this type of work and made the mistake of removing the magnetic actuator from the back of the bearings but forgot to place it back on.
