Question about 2008 Pontiac G5
I have a similar noise on my g5 i raised the car up since i work in a garage inspected ball joints, tie rod, cv boot for tears, struts, control arm bushings, and they all seemed to be ok im starting to think it may be the strut bearing plate its the only thing left as far as i can tell, but im only apprentice so if anyone knows another possible cause pls let me know
My sons car was making a simalar noise and they replaced the stablizer linkage and it seems to have solved the problem.

Check your intermediate shaft between the steering shaft and steering rack. This is a very common problem.

There are several components that could cause noise from the front when turning. The components to be concerned about are, Wheel bearings, Ball Joints, Tie rod Ends, CV joints and brake rotors.
Jack the car up under the control arm until the wheel is off the ground about 3 inches. Slide a pry bar under the tire and place the other hand on the top of the tire. As you lift and lower the pry bar fell for loose movement in the tire. If there is such movement you have a bad wheel bearing.
On your vehicle this is a sealed Hub.
Repeat the test above and watch the upper and lower ball joints for movement. Is there is movement replace the bad ball joint.
Tie Rod ends:
You have changed the inner and outer tie rod ends so you are probably covered there.
The Joint is housed in a rubber boot. If you can feel the joint inside the boot you can turn the tire forward and back and feel for play in the joint. If you are not able to feel the play you can loosen the clamp on the boot and push the boot out of the way. Then repeat the test.
You have already changed the rotors so this is not likely the issue.
