Check the swaybar end links, ball joints, and the control arm bushings. When you turn, those components get loaded up with the weight transfer of the car, and if they're worn out or damaged, they'll allow metal-to-metal contact that can create the noise you're hearing.

Have a shop look at the front end... there are bushing on the front of your car and if they are bad it will clunk when you turn.....
on rear wheel vehicles they are called a-arm bushings but, i do not know what they are called on your vehicle.

Loud clunking noise from yoyager when on full lock


Loud clunking noise WHERE in the Voyager when WHAT is "on full lock"? It might help to be a little more descriptive.

Knowing Chrysler minivans the way I do, I would assume that you are chasing noises in the front steering and suspension. Those are notorious for all kinds of noise in the front suspension. You need to check the stabilizer links, the stabilizer frame bushings and the upper strut bearings - these are the most common "noise-makers".

If it is making the noise when you have the wheels turned hard to one side and accelerating, then it is most likely a bad CV joint.

My 2003 gmc yukon pops when I turn deep. I had a mechanic to tighten up all the bolts underneathe my car, but it is still making a popping noise.


It is hard to tell without hearing your noise but you may have a steering shaft making some noise. They are notorious for it. GM came out with an updated version of it. It makes more of a clunking noise and not a popping noise though. It is not unsafe just annoying if that is your problem. They are about $100 and pretty easy to change and only available from a dealer I believe. You may have a ball joint making some noise. You should be able to take it to a reputable alignment or suspension shop and they should be able to check out your ball joints and suspension parts for you.

1998 fORD ESCORT WITH A CLUNKING IN THE LF OVER BUMPS


Most definately some bushing. Just check all of them, make sure all the bolts are tight. Jack the car up and get underneath it and start wiggling the suspension. Grab the wheel and shake it. Try to find the corner or side of the vehicle that the sound comes from.

Clunk noise from front left suspension


My guess is a strut bushing/bearing, but have your front end checked out by good shop to make sure it isn't something else more dangerous.
