Popping Noise in Steering wheel

Hello all, I need some help with a noise I am hearing. When I am driving straight I can't hear anything, but when I turn my steering wheel to make a cut or turn onto a road.... I can' hera anything, but when I release the wheel to come back straight... I can hear a popping noise... it sounds almost like a plastic popping noise. Any ideas?

Where does it sound like its coming from? Is it a loud popping, or is there a creak/squeal and then the pop? If you're lifted and it sounds like a 'creak'/'squeal' and then a 'pop' it may be your sway bar binding.

If its at factory height, and under warranty then take it to your dealer and take one of the guys for a test drive. They'll be able to figure it out and fix whatever's causing it. I wouldnt mess with it if its stock and under warranty- thats what it's for.
