Question Grinding Noise When Turning Only at Certain Angles

So I was turning into my neighborhood today going about 15 mph and at about 45 degrees there was a quick grinding sound from the front right that disappeared as I went past 45 degrees to a sharper turn. Then as I was straightening back out to drive straight, the grinding sound occurred again at about the same angle. It sounds like a stretching noise.

I hear it now when I go over bumps that rock my vehicle side to side, however when I compress the suspension while it's stopped, I can't replicate it. It also doesn't happen when I'm turning at slow speeds or turning the wheels while the vehicle is stopped.

It seems to only occur when turning at such speeds where the weight of the vehicle pushing outwards (sideways) is substantial enough.

Any ideas?

Solved.

Don't worry guys. It was a pair of binoculars sliding around in my center console. I wanted to lay down on some train tracks and end it right there. I've been doing my own repairs for a long time. I consider myself an above average troubleshooter. The wife made fun of me. It's time for the weekend.

Hello icer22x,

We certainly understand why this is concerning. Feel free to send us a direct message if you're thinking you'd like to work with the dealership. We can get a case started and escalate for further handling.

I will sell my children before I take my vehicle to the dealership.
