    I was driving yesterday and just after making a turn and straightening the wheel I heard a pop sound. I didnt think much of it cause it sounded like a rock might have just got thrown up and hit my step bars, happens sometimes. Since then Ive been having a lot of sounds coming from my driver side front wheel well. I get a lot of clunking and squeaking sounds while turning at slow speeds and a lot when going over bumps. What might this be? Struts, strut mount, bushings, sway bar related etc? I know my front struts are bad and had planned on replacing them soon so Im hoping thats all it is. I havent gotten under it yet to check everything out, I just looked around to see if I could tell if anything was busted visually.

    Heres a quick crappy video I took. Im just bouncing the vehicle with my foot on the step bar,you can tell from the bounce I need struts.

    Might have a loose bolt on the suspension somewhere, I'd take the wheel off and look over everything and check the torque.
