    Default Bravo 1 growls when turning

    I noticed last time I was out that I can hear a growling noise, or slight vibration when I make a hard left turn, but nothing when I turn right. Sounds like it's coming from the outdrive. Anyone have any ideas?
    I'd agree with you, but then we would both be wrong

    Gimball bearing needs to be checked out, also check for up/down play in the kingpin bushings....Common issue.

    Check it also when trimmed slightly up/down and try turning with each. Could also be Ujoints.

    Wait, don't run off. Don't you want four or eight more opinions

    Your steering wheel is hitting the cup holder....
