This is an easy one! These vans had a lot of problems with intermediate sway bar bushings. They are fairly cheap but a bit of a pain to change if you don't have a hoist as they are way under the van behind part of the front cross member. I would phone around and get a couple of quote from local shops, it should cost about $150. parts and labor. It is possible that the sway bar end links are worn as well, but 9 times out of 10 the bushings are all you'll need.
Here's a link to the same job:

Left turn signal changes speeds when turning left and makes ticking sound in steering wheel

What does it sound like when a cv joint is going out?


usually they will make a "clicking" sound when turning a hard right/left, like pulling into a parking space. if you hear this sound, chances are you have a cv problem. look under the front of your vehicle and look at the rubber boots that cover the cv joints, you will probably find them ripped or torn. when this happens, your grease will not have a way to stay in and thats what causes the "clicking" sound, dry or insufficiently lubricated cv joints. let me know what you find out. hope this helps, good luck.

Wheel bearings noise from front wheels


Hi

It sounds like your CV joints are getting worn, the reason is that most of your driving is don in a straight line which wears a groove so when you turn from lock to lock the bearings clunk over the groove, it is annoying but not particularly dangerous in the early stages of wear

Every time the steering wheel is turned sharply to either side I hear a kind of cranking sound what seems like it is coming from the steering shaft.


Most sounds while turning (grinding, clicking, clunking, etc) indicate bad CV joints. I'd get this looked at ASAP...

When foot is on gas i get a clicking knocking sound on right tire.. Sometimes when i start my mazda tribute it will make a clunk sound then it stops.


this is caused by a defective front drive axle part called a CV Joint, have it put on a rack and checked, most likely the rubber grease boot around the sealed joint is torn and the joint is running dry on grease, this causes it to "Click"

Clunking sound from front wheels, suspension on Hyundai Atos


It sounds like the CV joints are due to be replaced. Make sure you get them replaced and do not drive it too far, because the CV joints will fail anytime now. Once the CV joints fail, your going to have to get the car towed to get it fixed. Good luck and keep me posted, Oh and don't buy the car from there, who knows what else is wrong with the car that they are hiding from you.

When turning steering wheel - either way, clunking sound.


Sounds like you have a bad CV joint, this will make a clunking or clicking noise like you described only when turning, and varies with vehicle speed.

Have it repaired before it breaks and leaves you stranded, or damages anything else.

Knocking sound


maybe cv joints. check cv boots to see if torn or look out for grease marks in the area behind front wheel. This would be more clicking noise though and not banging.
