power steering pump probably went out.. if you can easily get at the belt and are any kind of mechanically inclined, remove the drive belt to the p/s pump and then start the car if the noise is gone then its probably part of the power steering pump

SOURCE: i have what sounds like
sounds as if your brake pads have worn down to the "screechers" These are small
metal clips attached to brake pads that scrape the rotors to alert the driver that
it is time to have the brakes serviced.
Hope this helps.

If the car had been in my garage with those symptoms I would have put new bushings in with the new struts as a precaution. If you have the strut out.... it's really quite simple and adds about 10 minutes to the job. Quite frankly a car with 7000 miles shouldn't clunk when you turn.
Does it wander as you drive down the road or move sideways on bumps? Not necessarily a lot but just enough to notice, you maybe have to turn the wheel a hair to get back in your lane. If so this would lend support to bad bushings, possibly the struts but also possibly control arms or sway bar. Tie rod ends could do this too, but it would be rare.
When it makes this clunk does the steering wheel jump in your hands? This would suggest a problem in your steering rack or power steering pump. I did a quick check at alldata and didn't see any recalls that would affect this problem.Hope this helps.
