Whining front suspension sound

Happy Friday everyone!
Car: 2015 E63S
Mods: H&R Springs + Lowering links

In the past few weeks, my car developed a pretty loud whining sound coming out from the front suspension (?).
Sound ONLY heard when the car moves slowly, usually when I start rolling from the traffic light or a stop sign.
Please let me know if you have any ideas on what can this sound be.

Thank you all for your help!

Thank you, but unfortunately the sound I hear is way different. Thinking it can be AMG AWD related...
Will take to the dealer this week...

Wow. I sure hope it's nothing major. Please update us when you find out what it is. Good luck.

Can you post a video

whining while rolling is using trans, axles, differential .... less likely brakes and suspension

Will take a video ASAP and post. Is there a diff in the front? The noise is mechanical in nature and sounds like a whale whine (?)
Apologies for the dramatic comparison
