Sounds like the rear trailing arm bushes, they are very common in the hondas, im not sure what a honda passport is, we dont get them here in new zealand, but most hondas have them fail quite often and make the noise you are decribing. check them out and see how you go.

Does the noise have any sort of metallic sound to it? I had a '97 CR-V and when I turned hard right or left it would slighty bind the exhaust sytem. Just enough over time to cause the spot welds on the heat shield over the resonator (the "muffler" behind the catalyst) to fail. When I'd turn sharp, the heat shield would lift slightly due to the failed welds and vibrate against the resonator. Took a bit of head scratching to find this one.

Sounds crazy, but you may have way too much air pressure in the front tires. IIRC, the tire manufacturer calls for about 36 lbs of pressure, but the little sticker on the B pillar of the drivers side says something like 26 lbs.
If you're over-inflated, the wheels may be slipping upon hard acceleration, causing the movement "to the side" that you are experiencing. Then, the back wheel(s) attempt to grip, and that corrects the "slide".
It's a real funky AWD system, and most of the time the back wheels do absolutely nothing...

I had the same problem before, you also feel a little shake on the steering wheel.
you have to check on two things:
First: check your car's hydrulic steering oil level.
Second: If the hydrulic oil level is ok, you have to change the rear diff oil, and there will be no groaning any more, no need to change the shaft.
