Normally I would start by investigating and trying to troubleshoot myself, then I would post here with my (incorrect) guesses and send us all down a rabbit hole. So this time I’m just going to describe the symptoms and see what you think.
I’ve had the car for 6 years and it has about 220K miles. About a month ago it started occasionally making a clunk or thunk noise. Hard to describe exactly but I will say that it reminded me of when (for no good reason) I had a 72 Jaguar XJ6 and the U-joint went bad. Now it makes more of a creaking noise and it makes it regularly when I am turning but not when going straight.
Other than the noises it still drives fine. Thoughts?
The noise started as a clunk/thunk, and over time progressed to a creaking noise? How long did it take for the transition to occur? When it was the clunk/thunk, did that also only occur when turning? Both directions, right & left, or just one turning direction?
