Clunking/grinding when turning

So My gto makes a kind of clunking/grinding noise when i turn to the right at very low speed/rpm's...Doest do it when im going above 10mph but say i try to pull into a parking spot it does it. Im wondering maybe upper strut baring?

It very well could be the strut bushings/bearings. Strut bushings, rear springs and the front radius rod bushings are almost always bad from the dealer.

What part of OR are you from?

Are you sure the noise is coming from the front?

My '06 did that from new. I took it back to the dealer and they had a service bulletin relating to improper spring install at the factory. If that is the same problem you're having it might be a warranty fix.

Ya its from the front. And im almost sure that it is infact either the right upper strut or the spring itself. ill take it back to the dealer and find out.

Maybe the strut leaked and although not completely dry pressure is causing it to thump when you turn? Maybe something is bent?
