I can feel it and hear it, passengers who ride with me have noticed it as well. I guess the one question I should have lead with is: Is this a single knock that you hear, or does it pop several times as you go through the turn? A single knock can still be the CV joint, unless it sounds more like it’s coming from your steering column. During this trip I only heard a knock once during a right hand turn, actually felt a somewhat weaker knock during left turns also. Wheel bearings. If you own a car, it probably makes noises you can’t identify, but would love to fix. If you can see the casting of the water pump, you can pinpoint the noise by holding the end of a long screwdriver against the casting and putting the other end of the screwdriver against your ear; if the bearing is bad you will hear the noise through the screwdriver. Steering Wheel Vibration: My Car Shakes While I’m Driving. If your steering wheel vibrates, or your car shakes while driving at highway speed, find out why.

Popping Sound On Sharp Turns
A bad wheel bearing can, as mentioned, seize and the torsional force that used to peacefully spin through the bearing now gets transferred to the knuckle or hub assembly. If the tunnel has a curve in it that goes in that direction, you will hear a slight crackling sound as you turn the wheel. If you can feel the movement then either the bearing is worn or the last edjit to fiddle with the nut and lock pin didn’t tighten it corrected (which has probably destroyed the bearing anyway, unless they’ve just done it to sell you a wheel bearing that may or may not actually get fitted).

This condition may be caused by a slip stick condition of the steering intermediate shaft resulting in the clunk noise or feel through the steering wheel. There was no sound when driving straight, just turning when going forward or in reverse out of the parking spaces. At one point it got so bad that I could feel the wheels ‘grabbing’ at the pavement when turning and hearing the popping that had gotten really loud. 1, when axles go bad they wiull pop and click when you make turns, replacement axles should correct that.

A U-type joint works fine when there is a very limited shaft angle variation (primary driveshaft on a RWD vehicle, for example). Given the angle movements required for both suspension travel and steering angle changes, a U-type joint will create a vibration as the two sides (input and output) begin to argue during shaft angle movement.
