1997 Dodge Nitro 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 209868 miles

My cars started making this sound when I make left turns above thirty miles an hour in the back passenger side like someone's knocking on my fender. I've had it lowered an inch and a half and I have the trunk mounted strut bar. I thought it might be the bearings but I wasn't sure.

Also. I haven't driven it in about a week and my brother apparently drove it next door and some how or another about a cups worth of what he thinks is kerosene or gas was added. I don't care if it's gas. But I don't know how kerosene will effect my car with my having had it so long with so many miles on it.

Do you

It does sound like a wheel bearing. Have you checked for excessive play? Also, if he put kerosene in it, chances are it will stop running when it makes its way to the engine.
