Default Strange Noise Coming from Car...

So today I was coming back from the auto store and I made a right turn. I heard some sort of...strange tumbling noise coming from the car, similar to the noise as if there's a loose nut rolling around in the trunk. Except it's coming from the middle-left of the car. It only happens when I make a right turn. So I went to a roundabout near my house and started doing circles to the right, and sure enough the car was making the tumbling sound. It's an 06 WRX with an aftermarket injen downpipe, catless and stage 2 cobb flash. Anyone have any ideas as to what the sound could be?

look in the wheel well on both sides (front) and see if there is a brake line or ABS sensor wire in the way. Also, try driving backward while the steering wheel is turned to the right as well.

Alright, so I checked the wheels, and I didn't see anything. But it was just a quick visual check, I didn't jack up the car or anything. And then I tried to do it backwards, no noise. It seems like...I don't know how to explain it...something is touching the front wheel though. Because it only happens if I am going fast enough: IE, if there's enough body roll. And then the more I accelerate to the right (the more body roll I experience) the faster the "knocking" sound becomes until it becomes almost a rolling sound.

Lol, more worrisome than interesting. Looks like I'll be taken the car to the dealer tomorrow. :-/ It'll be the first time I take the car there non-stock. I hope they don't bitch about my downpipe.
