    My car's making a 'dunk' noise when I turn the wheel at low speeds (both left and right, but worse turning right), it sounds like it's coming from inside the steering cowling and is best described as the kind of noise made by something catching on something else and then being released suddenly. There is no play in anything in my steering, according to the place that did my recent service, so could the CV joints be the culprit for this too?

    Have you checked your springs, maybe one's snapped.

    My clicking/clunking on the nearside was caused by cv joint but that was only while moving. While stationary anyone else think track rod ends?
