I would tend to believe it's more likely a worn sway bar bushing or link if it's a rattle or a small clunk, if it's a loud clunk probably a strut, try bouncing he back of the car when parked, if you get the clunk probably a strut if only when driving,turning,braking probably just a bushing on the sway bar
It could be a hub bearing, or CV joint in the axle, or a faulty tire. You could move the tire to a different position and see if the noise moves with it. Usually a hub bearing will make a roaring sound not a bump or knock, the CV joint can clunk as the axle turns.
Car wheels spin at different speeds, especially when turning. When making a turn the outside tire turns faster than the inside tire since to outside tire has a longer distance to travel in the same amount of time through the turn.
Sounds like a CV joint or outer wheel bearing assembly. Jack the right side up & remove the tire. Block the car so it doesn't roll away. Put emergency brake on & put car in neutral. Try to move the hub by rotating the spindle & listen to any noise. See if there is any up & down movement in th CV joint. Replace any worn parts. Good luck!
I recommend an inspection of all universal joints or CV(constant volocity) joints, whichever apply on the vehicle! A quick inspection of the rear suspension at the same time should reveal the source of the unusual noises that you describe.
A reputable service shop will do the inspection for free or for a minimal fee.
Have a great day!
