Guess the fault

Before I drop into the dealer I was wondering if anyone had had the same issue. On turning right at speed, e.g. Going round a roundabout, there is a "thumping" coming from feels like the nearside front. Sometimes I think I can feel it through the steering wheel slightly...
It's a 3.2Q4.

Had something similar on my Saab 9-3 a couple of years ago, and a VW Passat. Both turned out to be broken front springs? Probably not, but worth a look.

Sounds like a worn bush or as above the damper

I had exactly that fault just a couple of weeks ago and it turned out to be a broken spring. I'd have sworn it was at the front but it was one of the rears. Both back springs replaced and it's perfect now.

On a Q4? Possible that the Torsen diff has locked up, driveline wind-up is leading to the front-outside wheel skipping?
