Default Clunking noise when turning left at low speeds

My husband joined this thread for me in January due to our lack of faith in repair shops. Since then another issue has been going on which makes me yet again afraid to even get checked out before I gain a bit of knowledge first.

Basically the issue is as described in the title. My '07 PT Cruiser makes a clunking sound coming from the front driver's side when I turn left at low speeds of about 5 mph (i.e. pulling into or out of parking spots). Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Default Re: Clunking noise when turning left at low speeds

Just bought our PT 3 weeks ago from a Honda Dealer

When we test drove it, there was no sound in the front end. We have a Saturn ION that makes god awful sounds all the time, so we were focused on that.

There were no sounds at all. After it went through service, inspection, oil change, alignment, then it started.

The salesman said it was something with the alignment. Im not so sure. I made them fix it before we bought it.

They replaced both lower control arm bushings and a boot kit, also replaced passenger side axle seal.

Hope this helps
