    When I turn my 2017 MX right into a rising driveway, or turn right out of a descending driveway, I hear a "honk" or moan from the front right. Today I heard the noise twice on a right turn out of a descending driveway, suggesting that there is a problem in the front right and rear right. I never hear the noise when turning left in or out of the the same sort of driveway. I don't have to be moving very fast on the right turn for the noise to occur. The noise isn't much louder with the passenger window rolled down.

    I never hear the noise on a right turn on level streets.

    I've got an appointment at the SC Monday morning, and I've found two or three driveways near the SC that can generate the noise. I'm supposed to have a tech ride with me to hear the noise Monday.

    Anyone have experience with this? I'm guessing a suspension bushing. We'll see.

    Update: The SC is replacing the front sway bar. They're also checking the rear, since I hear two noises when leaving a parking lot turning right. The service tech on the ride-along also heard two noises.
