    get someone to turn steering while holding a front spring , that might help narrow it down :-)

    could be a broken spring (visual required) or top bearing collapsed (you will feel this when turning)

    Mine is making all sorts of noises too. Has been for yonks now. For various reasons, I haven't fixed it yet. Indecision on how to proceed, basically. But I'd agree with the above; it's probably the springs or strut mounts/bearings. Mind needs mounts/bearings and ARB bushes too. Paul
