Default Knocking while turning

I have a 03 turbo with automatic transmission. Whenever I turn the wheel I have a knocking sound. As soon as I straighten the wheel it stops. Does it more as I'm turning left. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

I would also say cv joints if it's only when you're turning.
Is it more like a crunchy clicking/grinding noise?

No, I think it sounds like knocking. It's a steady knock. It doesn't speed up when I accelerate.

We need more info as to when it happens. If it happens when you're standing still, the bearing in the upper strut mount is my guess. I bought one for a Malibu yesterday. Car was making a scary knock/knock/knock as the steering wheel was turned. The sound was the spring fighting the resistance of the failed bearing.



If it only happens while moving, nevermind.

Only while moving.
