so, I've replaced the both front bearings to no effect but I've noticed now that when I exit to the right off the highway and turn hard the sound goes away. I've got the suspension parts to replace so that I can get the alignment done but I just haven't had the time to get back under there. Tried today but the rain will not go away. I fly out tomorrow for a week for work but will get at it next weekend.

Growl fixed. Turned out to be the overlooked passenger engine mount.
