Has anyone out there seen a banking sidecar? so you can lean into the corners rather than steer?

There have been many attempts at leaners through the years. Some worked OK and others not. Armec still has one and several have converted the Velorex 562's into leaners. There are some limitations due to ground clearance, drivers clearance in the left turns (in OZ) and lean angles. For the do it yourselfers; steering geometry will also need to be addressed.
A few here on the site have assembled their own leaners and posted pix of their result.

This is a nice Armec that was at Paonia a few years ago. He said it handles great but with the boxer there is a stop for the right jug on the sibecar frame that limits the lean in right turns.
