Have you checked the wheel bearings/hub and bearing assembly? The side loading in a turn can cause a bearing make more noise. A dry rubber bushing can also make a noise like you describe. Look at stabilizer shaft bushings, control arm bushings, strut mount bushings and steering gear mounting grommets if used. Spray suspect bushings with silicone lube to see if the noise goes away. Usually just lubing them with a non-petroleum lube will fix them. Also consider the upper strut bearing for the source of the noise. These are areas for this type of noise that I have found on General Motors cars, I don't claim to be an expert on your brand!
