Hyundai Making noise

Hello my lovely girlfriend owns a 1999 Hyundai Tiburon, after parking her car on a curb (dont ask), The car started to produce a "new unusual noise" in the front right area of the suspension (curiosly the same tire she parked up on a curb). My first suspicion was ball joints. If anyone knows what this sounds like please let me know.

Thank you
<----- My girlfriend

What type of noise is it making? Do you see damage anywhere? Rubbing of any parts?

Might be worth it to have it checked out.

A somewhat loud thunking noise....if it's ball joints, what could it run to fix? Is it possible to do it in a driveway?

When does it make the noise? Where does is seem to be coming from? Does it make the noise on bumps, or always? Turning?

I doubt that it's ball joints, but you knever know. I think the bigger probability would be a bent sway bar, bent exhaust hitting something, a shield knocked loose hitting something, etc...

Makes the sound when braking, and from the same tire she parked on a curb.

Have you taken the wheel off and peeked in there to see what's going on?

Hyundai

Yes I took the wheel off a took a peek but there was nothing visible other than I had forgotten to put the cover on the brake pads, but that wasnt the same noise. I think that it might be a bent sway bar and am going to check that this morning. Keep you posted.
