Grinding noise while turning

1990 Nissan Maxima, i noticed that after changing the struts/springs on my car that when i make a hard right turn while accelerating the car makes a terrible grinding noise. I know this is a classic sign for a CV joint, but could it be anything else? It is definitely not tire rubbing, definitely metal sound. It doesnt seem to be getting worse. Thanks.

Yes, it could be something else. And probably is. CV joints usually make clicking or thumping sounds.
Briing it back and have them take a second look. It might be as simple as a bent dust shield.
