Noise when turning

Hey guys

I havent had a chance to take the car to the shop, but lately ive been hearing a clunk sound.

I literally hear it every time i get in the car. When I turn left and then turn right I hear a clunk coming from the front of the car. I've searched the forums but it didnt help much.

I remember half a year I sent the car for a similar noise, and the mechanic said my everything seemed OK from under the car.

It doesn't effect the ride but I'd rather be safe.

Also I hear a clicking sound when going at low speeds not sure if this is related.

this is only heard during low speeds.

any advices?

It's a very light clicking sound. Thought it was related to the clunk noise that occurs.

Have the sway bar end links checked. I was helping a buddy installing the led light bars and backrack headache racks on his truck project when his brother came with his 2012 MK6. He's hearing the noise on speed bump, low speed and when turning on both directions.

It could be the subframe....watch at the ~30 second mark:


If it is, get a subframe collar kit instead of the "fix" they recommend in that video (it doesn't work as well)
