2016 bmw 340 has a metallic "pop" - loud - when backing and wheels are full lock position. Power steering? Thought it was suspension component but all looked good when on lift

Check the tierod ends or the CV axle shafts. The tierod ends can be moved if they are worn. Also check the sway bar end links. If the rubber bushings are hard or worn out, it will make a noise.

Steering jerky turning when stationary

Could be the power steering pump, if you have power assist, it could be the rack and pinion. You also need to check suspension parts, ball joints, tierod ends, control arm bushings, Etc...No year, make or model?

Whilst driving everytime i turn a corner there is a lound clunk sound just wondering what this means??

Not good. If this is a rear wheel drive car, the tierod ends or ball joints could be worn out in the frontend. It is dangerous as the tierods connect the front wheels and the balljoints support all the weight of the front of the car. There are a few other parts such as idler arms and pitman arms which can make the same problem.

The front wheel drive cars have different steering features but still have balljoints or strut towers which support the weight of the vehicle.

In either case, someone with skill will need to inspect the suspension to diagnose the problem. It takes more tools to get some of these parts off than an average homeowner has.

You would be best off to go to an Alignment shop for this inspection. It is the exact type of work which Alignment shops do and they routinely replace these components

Why do i get ashuder on my polo 07 model 1.4i or not stable on rd i put new ball joints tierod ends rack ends thanx regards sam naidoo.

I shouldn't think an 07 model would have enough wear on the front suspension components to cause the type of problems you describe, unless you sustained damage in an accident or drive in rough terrain. I would suspect one or more bad tires or misalignment. Worn struts could be part of the problem. If the shudder you describe is in the front end, rotate your tires front to back and see if the shudder moves to the rear. If it does, then it's most likely bad tires.

When driving down the road and turning left my vehicle rocks back and forth almost violently why is that?

I am going to use a Crown Vic as an example because we do not know what type of vehicle you have. On the Crown Vic there are rear stabilizer bars(sway bars) which go from one side of the body to the other. On each side there is a bolt with many rubber bushings which are meant to prevent the car body from shaking and rolling in turns.

Looking from the back of your car you will see the bar hanging down before the rear axle. One side, if not both sides have broken bolts. They are called suspension links and they are readily available at autoparts stores. You also have similar sway bars in the front. The front set bolts to the frame in a different type of mount.

You can have bad shocks or struts, moreso on one side as you indicate the problem is with left turns. On the extreme condition, a balljoint or tierod end can cause sloppyness in the body on turns.

There are some differences with rear suspension on front wheel drive cars and AWD vehicles. But is you see a bar underneath your vehicle just check out if it is still attached. I hope you found my solution very helpful and would be interested in your outcome.

Yep....agreed. Ball joints are bad....if you had done maintenance on the front end steering or suspension system, you need a front end alignment. But, you definitely have issues with the suspension system.

Tierod, ball joints, struts....could be a lot of things.

Let us know what has been done to the front end.
