Took her in yesterday and...nothing fixed yet. They kept calling me saying they weren't able to hear the grinding sound when turning left. I told them they weren't doing it right lol. Seems to only happen when my foot is on the break, turning full left slowly.
Eventually I went out and took the tech for a drive...around the parking lot. 30 seconds literally. He said "Oh yeah, that doesn't sound good."
He thinks it's the sway bar and said that may be the reason for the slight slant (which he had not actually looked at yet and it is hard to notice). He needs to put it up on some special hoist that was in use for the rest of the day so it is back in on Friday first thing. Hopefully fixed then. That would be a nice birthday present.
I'll keep this thread updated with the results for both issues.
