Sounds like the Spring may be broken or there is another loose front end part such as a ball joint or a spring seat or something like that.

I had a broken spring on my 1990 Cadillac Deville and didn't know it until looking at it up under the wheel, and experiencing a popping or knocking sound when turning.

It could also be the bearing cap area problem.

A knock in front end when i turn


If the knock is heard when on a smooth surface when turning at full lock, it is one or both CV joints being worn. That usually happens soon after a CV rubber boot splits and lets out all the grease. Test this in a quiet parking lot. Replace both sides, not just one.

If it happens when driving somewhat straighter on a less than smooth surface, it will be either a suspension strut or strut mount failure, or less often, a lower outer ball joint.

Hard to say without hearing it but check front stabiliser "d" bushes for wear & check all subframe bolts are tight. Does the noise stop if you press the brake lightly.

Knocking sound at steering wheel during turning of mistubishi adventure


It sounds like a ball joint is worn, possibly the rack end ball joint or tie rod end.
With the bumpy ride it could also be that the front shock absorber has failed.
Jack the front wheel up on each side in turn, grab the wheel at each side and shake it back and forth as hard as you can. If you hear or feel looseness, the problem is in the steering, as above.
Then shake the wheel while holding it at top and bottom. If you feel looseness then, the problem is in the front suspension wishbones.
Repeat this on the other front wheel. Let it down on the ground, then bounce each front corner up and down as hard as you can (you might have to have a second person with you doing this). If you hear a clunk or feel excessive bounciness, it is the shock absorber. When bouncing like this, the car should resist, and not keep bouncing when you let go.

My Vue front end shakes when I go over RR or bumpy


Stop driving and have this checked out ASAP.

You have a worn, loose or broken track rod and/ or streering rack. Also the front suspension should also be checked just to be safe
