rear suspension noises

I am getting a groaning mooing sound( for lack of a better descriptive term)from the back end while turning sharply at low speed. The car rides fine otherwise.Noise does not occur at highway speeds- only tight low speed turns. I do need to change a strut mount which is going bad but I figure it should not make those kind of noises.
Any ideas? Is it a case of worn bushings?

I suspect the rear differential needs new gear lube.
