Re: Thumping/Clunking Noise, anyone?

The steering should never bind when making a turn. Barring a foreign object lodged among the steering components it sounds like a bad valve in the steering rack. Any popping/cracking noise from the front when turning can be attributed to the strut bearing which is located at the top of the strut upper mount. This bearing can be replaced whithout replaceing the whole strut assembly.
