Car lurches and dashboard flickers when making moderate speed left turn

Hi all,

I drive a manual 2000 Toyota Celica GTS. Whenever I make a moderate left turn at 15-20 mph it makes a clicking/rattling noise. I have had a couple instances where if the turn is sharp enough at those speeds, the car will shudder harshly and the dashboard will flicker on and off and go crazy. This only happens on left turns and right turns are completely normal. At first I thought it was a CV joint issue but after the shuddering I believe it is something different. I have searched everywhere for someone with a similar issue and consulted several of my mechanic friends and have come up empty. Any help or ideas would be awesome!
