I have a 2012 4x4 EB With 40,000km on it. At about 35000 I started to hear a loud groaning coming from the front left wheel, but it's only when I turn right at a low speed(about 25-30), and it doesn't happen all the time. Took it to the dealer they could not hear it. Can anyone help me please...

I'd check the hub bearings, they been known to make a groan/grinding sound intermittently.

4wd? leveled?

Have you check to insure nothing is at risk of rubbing the tires?

after I leveled, I found that my CV shafts started to make a noise like I had large mud tire from time to time.

Leveling puts them at a less than ideal angle...

My front hub went out at 40,000 miles. Was still covered under warranty. Did close to same thing ur talking about. It will get worse expessially at low speeds and when braking.

+1 it may be a defective bearing, and BTW this is the only thing that actually holds the front wheels from coming off. So, don't neglect it.
