Honda CR-V Noise with extreme turning

I have a 1998 Honda CR-V that runs great. If in a parking lot turning real tight I hear a noise from the back of the vehicle. Either right or left turns, only when turning sharply, I hear a groan of sorts. Like something needs oiled. This is an automatic with all wheel drive.

thanks for any help!

Struts maybe; you're putting a side load on everything when you crank it hard over in a turn.

Have you tried changing the drive fluid yet,or ever.
Old fluid will cause that to.

I have a '01 CRV that I bought from a salesman that serviced them before. He suggested a heavier weight 4-wheel drive fluid in the rears, if too noisy. I am used to it.
Be safe, Gary

Try to replace rear fluid first. Wife has a 2006 that was doing the same thing and only needed the rear fluid changed.

Looks like ur wheel bearing is at the end of it's journey.
Bad wheel bearing usually cause a moaning, growling, or high pitch squeak etc. And yes, it could go away when u tap on the brake, and more noticeable at low speed. For further diagnose, if u suspect it to be passenger side front, then drive it a big faster, and turn left, so the car's weight will shift to the right, the noise should be more noticeable. And the vice versa when u turn right.
