It's probably your front passenger side wheel bearing is worn. More load on the right side when turning left and spacers generally reduce bearing life.

Thanks for the suggestion, I have doubts that is the problem because I would expect that noise to happen if I was in neutral as well. Please correct me if I'm wrong as I am by no means a technical guy (unfortunately).

In gear, it may place a slightly different pull or push load on the shaft going into the hub assembly...

My first thought was a torn lower motor mount or trans mount...or even the rear diff mount. Can you get it on a rack and check those with a key to the city?


Er....I mean pry bar?
