    Hello @gji honda Could you upload a video as that will help us understand what you mean.
    Most of the time, with the symptoms you have mentioned, it could be the CV joint.

    Good shout @DrSam as it's kind of hard to imagine a "crunching" sound on full lock. Usually, it's either a thudding sound or a grinding sound or a knocking sound.

    Something else to check - does it only make the noise when the wheel is turning and on full lock, or does it do it on full lock regardless?
