I left the CV at home for the winter, so I can't go out and examine it, but I'd like to get some feedback anyway...

Whenever I turn the wheel all the way to one side, usually while doing parking maneuvers (sp?), I hear a strange thumping/creaking kind of noise from the front end of the car... It doesn't sound like a wheel rubbing, because it isn't a constant sound, its intermittent, and when I turn the wheels back, it stops and the car drives fine...

Anyone else encounter this?

AFFECTED:
All 1979-2002 models

SYMPTOMS:
Loud clunk (or bang, or pop, or thunk, etc) from front end when steering is turned to full stop.

DIAGNOSIS:
Front spindle is contacting the lower control arm.

SOLUTION:
Apply thick waterproof lubricant to the "pocket" where the spindle is contacting the lower control arm. Add this procedure to your regular maintenance schedule (once a year or whenever the clunking sound returns).

I was gonna say grease the stops but I thought he meant it made the noise when steering not at lock.
Also our search feature is not the friendliest to use for some. 99% of the time someone does a search they don't change the Date Range and it is default for "Newer Than a Week" . So it will not return any results older than that and most don't pay enough attention to change it. Plus they don't change the Forum or Category to search and they get no results since it defaults to news. Of course it will not show up any tech post even if you have the exact wording of the tech header. That is why we have people saying they searched and nothing came up.
