Strange noise and jerk when I turn

Every time I make a sharp turn I hear a loud klunking noise and from the front of the car.The car even jerks sometimes when I hear the noise...
The front side of the rim and tire were hit against a curb about a month ago..any ideas of what it could be?

Re: Strange noise and jerk when I turn

Any visible signs of damage or rubbing under the car? Does it happen when you turn left or right or both directions? How does the car track...does it pull left or right while driving or braking?

Re: Strange noise and jerk when I turn

Sounds to me like a bad tie rod end or even one of the ball joints. If it was a bent rim or even a wheel bearing you would feel that even when you are driving straight.

Also check your upper control arm alignment shims, I have had them come out before and your upper control arm will make a clunk sound.

Check your rag joint. I had a torn one on my 68, and it would make a clunking sound upon hard turns.
