Front End Noises

i can hear a "squank" type noise and sometimes feel a slight grinding in the right front area when making a hard left hand turn..... im not to familiar with the front end steering components but think some bushings might be worn out.... only 45,000 on truck most is light duty driving... any ideas....we crawled under and had the steering wheel turned back and forth and i saw some movement on some things , i just dont know what its supposed to be like...

I also have this, usually pulling into a driveway. Kind of sounds like a tire rubbing on a fender in a way, but my OE tires and wheels are on so I know thats not it. Let me know what you discover INJEKTER1
