Sounds like a drive train issue ,would start by checking drive shalfs and wheels and does dipping the clutch make any difference to the issue? Always difficult to locate a noise ,as you can only check for play in components

Usually a sign that the c.v. Joint is worn on what ever side you are loading up by turning hard lock right will load up the left side and vide versa

As suggested check drive shafts also check for wheel bearing noise , and check for anything loose under car like heat shields any exhaust mounts or brackets also the core of the catalytic converter can become loose in the casing worth a check.
