Default steering wheel click

Noticed today that whilst turning quite tight corners and under acceleration I heard a clicking noise from what I think is the inside of the steering wheel. Two or three clicks at a time. Doesn't happen all the time, just seems to be when putting the foot down a bit. Searched on here and found threads on the clock spring. Do you think that's what it could be? If so should I be worried about the airbag? I've never had to replace one so have no experience with this part.
Short ram intake, chrome grill, chrome belt line, drilled/slotted discs, few flames, engine dress up, chrome bits and pieces.

My car does this, just gets ignored.

Clockspring is thin plasctic coiled in a plastic container, don't think it'll make noise whether broke or not- And if it were broke, I'm sure you'd get something screaming at you!!!!!

There's an auto signal cancel (light plasticy click)

There's a system to lock steering shaft- it's steel on steel. if it's not fully disengaged I could see it making noise, and mine still has it for now
