04 Mazda MPV. At low speeds, ideally while turning in a parking garage or coming out of a restaurant parking or turning in a cul de sac, and only while taking a right, there is a metal on metal grinding sound. I never hear it at high speeds and it seems only while the weight transitions to the left. I cannot tell which wheel well the sound is coming from. If I try to wiggle the front-end of the car up and down and side to side I don't hear anything more strange from one side to the other and stiffness appears similar on both sides. *UPDATE* 9/8 OK, I've still not fixed this. It appears more prevalent when warm. The grinding could possibly be a strut mount, now that I know they are basically rubbery things. It still only happens at very low speed when turning right, the more turn the better. It also happens in neutral, which may eliminate CV. Also I should note that I can pretty much replicate the sound sometimes with the car completely parked, wheels straight, rocking back and forth in the driver's seat. This is why I'm leaning toward a strut or strut mount. I think it reasonable to replace both on both sides, does that sound reasonable? I'll do it myself. If that doesn't correct it, bring it in, but I'm very hesitant to bring it in without trying this first and spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars. I've heard also it could be a ball joint, but could that make a sound with the car stopped? Also, is there anything else I need to replace besides the strut mount, such as a new spring seat or whatever...?. *UPDATE* 9/10 I'm going to do the mounts, but I see that the mount including a new bearing and screws as a "kit" is available, or for quite a bit cheaper I can just get the bearing. Is there any need whatsoever to buy a full new mount, or is a new bearing sufficient?
