Funny noise goes away when turning left.

So My Buick Rendezvous is making a wobbly almost nocking noise while driving. Then noise sounds like its right below and in front of me. But it seems to go away briefly when when I drive a left hand curve or turn left.

    First would be a constant velocity joint has worn out and is letting the axle move around.

    Might be wear in the A-arm where it's bolted to the subframe for the front of the car.

    Might be bearing in the wheel hub, but that usually makes a grinding or gear like sound while moving.

    Any of those things, also possibly a front strut mount. The vehicle needs to go on a lift for a look-around.

    There are lots of things including the strut mount along with a tire that has worn unevenly often due to alignment. Noise could be from plastic splash panels.

    Re alignment: I have a Cobalt and the tires were not aligned correctly after strut replacement for about 5000 miles and the tires worn unevenly. They still make unusually noises at different speeds on different days. There is a wobble I can feel at low speeds due to that wear that is sometimes there.

    Mr. S is right that it needs professional attention.
