I noticed today after taking a hard left turn to pull into a gas station that my car makes a unique sound when turning left. My steering isn't affected but there is a weird noise when I make left turns, I'm not sure how to explain it but it and I don't know what to look for to see if anything is out of the ordinary. Any suggestions?

Can you explain the sound a little? Is it grinding, rubbing, knocking, roaring, clicking, etc.?
Do you have power steering, disc or drum brakes, lowered spindles?
Is it only on hard left turns?

Have someone hold the steering wheel and grab one of the front tires and try to move it. Then do the other tire. If one or both of of them move without any movement in the steering wheel you have linkage problems.
It could be a broken motor mount too.
Need more info on the sound. And your setup you have.

Is the car lowered?
My front tires rub the fender if I lock the the steering wheel in either direction.

Took me a while to figure out where that noise was coming from.

Great movie!🙂
