Hello fellow SHO owners. New to the forum.
I have a 2010 SHO with about 77K miles. Getting a cyclical thumping or warmbling noise in the front end. It is getting louder. When I turn the wheel slightly to the right it is much quieter almost gone. Just replaced wheel hub/bearing thinking this was it. Still there. Any help out there as tonthe cause would be appreciated.

Tire perhaps? Hub would be my first guess too. Welcome.

Does it make the noise both when accelerating and decelerating?

It gets progressively louder as speed increases. Tires are newer. Did rotate them just to see. Defiantly not a tire issue. When steering wheel is centered it’s loud. Slight turn right it almost goes away. When I did wheel hub (only did PS), looks like there is a support bearing between PS axle and Tranny.

Axle issue? Sounds like things could go bad fast, so you should have a mechanic put it on a lift and check it out ASAP if you can't figure it out on your own.
