    Hello TW. Lately i've been experiencing a noise that sounds like its coming from my front end. It happens when i go around a curve. Sounds like a popping noise and i can kinda feel it in the steering wheel. It seems to only happen when turning the wheel about a quarter turn to the left or right. Seems like something is banging together or like something has a catch in it? Just a pop or clunk sound when turning to go around a curve. Doesn't do it when turning the wheel back to straight. I tried to recreate the noise by turning the wheel while its parked and it doesn't do it then? I need some advise from you guys that are mechanic's(shade tree or professional) before i take it in to the shop. Thanks
