Default Sound when turning right

I mentioned a squeek sound when I start my car in another threadand it has developed further. This squeek/rattle/rubbing/metallic sound occurs momentarily when I start the car and when ever I turn right while moving forward. My power steering fluid is just a tad low, and my CV boots look fine from above. It is not the brakes like has happened before when I needed new pads. It could best be described as a rock or ball bearing bouncing around somewhere in the engine compartment.

I just noticed the sound when I start it yesterday, and today it already developed into the turning sound.

Don't discount the strut or upper strut joint. My struts made a popping/creacking noise. I thought it was the hub/bearing assemblies at first. Does it happen when you go forward or reverse after braking?

Only going forward and turning right. I usually have to be going faster than 5 mph to get the sound. Also it does it momentarily when I start the car, so I think that rules out the strut or bearings, as they would recieve no motion or force when I start the car. Oh, and it seems to do it most when I am on the gas some, if I am just coasting through a right hander, it isn't as loud.

When you start the car, the engine torques over. Your suspension moves. Strut or the upper strut bearing is a possibility still. Take it to a shop and have it check. They'll usually check for free, hoping you'll buy struts.
