Hi, Thanks for the suggestions,
We had the front wheels checked and balanced today just in case there was any wall damage etc. but couldn't find any problem,
We checked for any free play in the bearings also there was no undue noise from the bearings either,
We rechecked the lower swivel joints and the steering ball joints all were OK.
We checked the drive shaft for any undue play in and out or signs of damage to the gaters etc but all seems fine
You can put it on full lock in either direction and drive around in circles with no undue noise.
But the problem still persists, it doesn't always do it but on some roundabouts you can get the judder back through the steering and the bump bump bump, but you can drive around the same roundabout and nothing.
Its really getting annoying, that it doesn't happen all the time, the only consistent thing is its always only when turning right or on a bend to the right never when turning or on a bend to the left, and while I'm not certain it really does seem like its coming from the nearside front.
I take your point about the bearing only giving a problem when under load, but there really isn't any noise or free play from it even when the bump bump bump judder starts it really isn't noisy ?
It feels like a puncture or a buckled wheel but only when turning right, no problems in a straight line or turning left
