I know I'm late on this one but if it doesn't get to you maybe others will find it useful. The issue your having is with a component called the active sway bar. In your car the front sway bar isn't just a standard style which is basically a long metal bar. Yours actually uses hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump to help agianst body flex during cornering. Of course there are alot of components in this system to make the bar do this such as control modules, sensor packs, valve bodies. But typically I have seen the bar it self begin to leak fluid and eventually fail. Your best bet though is to have the dealership run faults on your car and see if the one of the bars did actually fail or is there something else going on. Hope this helps.
