Bad Constant Velocity joint in the half shaft, on one side. Probably the outside CV joint on the half shaft. Which side Left or Right? Dunno, you didn't state which way you were turning. An inspection by a competent mechanic is warranted now. You don't EVEN want a CV joint to go bad at high speed!

I have a thumping noise under my car. I thought maybe it was the cv joint but it does not make the noise when i turn only going straight. Appyling brakes does not effect the noise. Seems as thought the...

Without testing the vehicle myself, I would guess it may be the drums (rear brakes) are out of round. If you have replaced them with after market they have likey come from the factory out of round.
The other simple answer is that you have cord seperation in the tires.

Does the steering wheel shake/wobble between 5-15 MPH? If so, the tires have cord/casing issues.

More info would be helpful.

Front End shaking

Most likely with this problem is the front tires. The tires maybe " out of balance " or " out of round " causing the vibration at certain speeds.

Front weal shaking

not much to go on here, but heres my thoughts.
1. you have have a front tire with tread seperation. sometimes you can see or feel it by looking at the tire tread. sometimes you can't see seperation only feel it in the steering wheel.
2. does it shake at certain speed? if so what speed? anything over 45 mph its possible the tires need to be rebalanced.
3. does this shaking happen when depress the brake pedal? if so the front brake rotors are warpped and will need to be inspected. they may need to be replaced or just machined.

A little more information would be helpful.

Going over bumps or bump roads, stearing shakes,pulls, at any speed fine after 15 min park

Please have a check at your steering rack and your shocks.

But I have a strong belief it could be your steering rack.

Sounds like the wheel balance is out on the new tyres, if the rears are out of balance expect the car to shake, if the fronts are out expect the steering to shake.
Best thing is to take it back and have the balance checked. Also good idea to stay with the same make and type of tyres all round.
