Welcome, I'm Chris and independent contractor that helps customers here.
It appears like your comparing your vehicles concerns to another you read about here or there, although we can not see that other post. Can you feel me in a little more prior to me confirming or not its drive able.
If it a moan, groan, or whine noise that comes and goes with swerving then its a tire wear issue or a wheel bearing failure. If its a tire then its an alignment concern normally and that can be put off if needed. A wheel bearing however needs to be addressed prior to driving 500 miles.
If its a clunk, knock, bang then it could be a weak or damaged tie rod end, ball joint, or stabilizer joint or CV joint. I again would not drive it more than 500 miles this way.
Thanks for letting me assist you. I hope I met all your expectations.
