My 87 5k TQ makes the most obscur noise when cold, like a squeeky bearing from
the drivers side.  Only occurs when turning or the car is jolting around.  Goes
away when the car is warm, but has nothing to do with engine performance (can
kill the engine and coast, noise still there.)  Could this be a bad strut
