Hiya,
There was some mixed posts on this problem already. Can someone give me a definate answer?
When exiting my driveway, I hear something like a broom, or a stick hitting my car. The sound is from the front right.It is only aparent while amongst slow left turns, and a hard turn of the steering wheel.
That is it thanks.

Actually it sounds like one of the front sway bar end-links bushings has failed (or washers for the bushing). This will cause a knock when going over speed bumps, out of driveways, and when the body weight shifts causing the knock you describe.

Check your end-links and see if either side is damaged

I guess that some could last a while, but mine only last me long enough to get to the store and buy a new axle. It's an easy job to do, and the cost is nothing compared to the damage a broken axle could cause at a decent speed...Josh

It was the sway's bolt. I missed it when I jacked it up because it tighted up. On the ground I could spin it by hand.
Thanks Monty, you had it.

Thanks,everyone for the help.
