2011 grand cherokee steering noise
 
We bought it in aug of 2010 laredo x 4x4,now we have little over 20000 miles and every time i make a left turn a knocking sound comes from the front driver side ( speed of 20 to 40 mph) i took it to 3 dealerships and none of them can seem to find what is causing it, im taking it to another dealership some time this week.

Also i have checked the vin # by calling chrysler and there is no tbs or recall on the vehicle.

Thank for the help

Knocks can be difficult to isolate with your hands and ears on the vehicle let alone a vague description over the interwebz... I know your more asking if someone has delt with it before and not specifically asking for a full diagnosis, and hopefully someone can give some information, personally I have yet to deal with this, I remember some people were talking about the intermediate steering shaft (that goes from the column to the rack) causing some steering knocking noises... again I have yet to deal with this, furthermore I think there was a tsb made reguarding this knocking.

I have a 2011 JEEP COMPASS, and on mine when making a slow right turn on uneven road, you can hear a popping or snapping sound coming from the left front area, of the lower control arm.
There is a old T.B. for 2009 model with same problem. told to replace mounting bolts for LOWER CONTROL ARMS !!
