Q: Knocking sound when turning. Possibly suspension.

asked by on

When turning my steering wheel, my car makes a knocking/clicking noise. I was told by Meineke that it has something to do with the suspension. What's going on and how much will it cost to fix this?

It could be a tie rod end that is worn out. A technician could tell you exactly where the problem is coming from if you schedule an inspection of the clicking noise when you turn.
