    it it from the drivers side when you turn right and drop off a curb? dont know how to explain the noise but its a grinding/rubbing like someone is sliding a wooden chair back on a laminated floor?

    jack up the drivers side and check the driveshaft. sounds like the anti roll bar is rubbing on the driveshaft, it is thicker on the drivers side.

    maybe get some harder suspension? have you checked you front struts for leaks as they could be bottoming out causing the banging and arb hitting. standard suspension shouldnt do that normally i only had problems over 40mm. im now about 80mm lol.
