knocking sound when turning

so i work in a building that has a parking structure under ground... i park on the 5th flloor down and i make about 20 left turns to get down there and 20 rights to get back up. everytime i make a turni hear a knocking noise in my stearing... its not a constant fluttering noise... but just one knock everytime i turn my wheel to the left or right. I know its not my tires rubbing, its def something in my steering somewhere else...


anyone with ideas?


much appreciated...

-Dave

Re: knocking sound when turning

i had that problem with mine AFTER i put in my rouch country lift same side ... as i turned to the left it made the noise on the passenger side, and i popped my head under there and... my swaybar end bolt popped out and the passenger side sway bar was just sitting there...

i doubt thats ur problem but hey ... its worth a shot

Re: knocking sound when turning

Yup - check sway bar - make sure it's centered.

Re: knocking sound when turning

I had an issues with mine but it sounded like rubbing or like what it sounds like when your in four wheel low trying to turn with big tires. It only happen with sharp turns. Like pulling out of a parking space. It ended up being a sensor that was engaging 4whhel drive. Replaced it and no more noise. Not sure if that's what your hearing.

how did you test the sensor to know it was bad? did you take it to the dealership??? how much did those buggers charge you?!

Re: knocking sound when turning

*4- my steering wheel vibrates and I hear clucking sounds when holding steering wheel to the end and making a turn. I was told I needed new sway bars and stabilizer links.

Tell you the truth I haven't since the last mechanic I went to said it wasn't a big issue, I only remember when I hit a bump, but from what I read online it can stress the steering components if not fixed so I will soon enough, I'll let u know and good luck on diagnosing the problem and finding a fix.
