Hi there:

Believe it or not, this type of noise is rather common after major front end service has been completed; especially if aftermarket parts have been used. Sometimes when new suspension components are installed, it takes a while for them to ’settle in" and thus they will make loud popping sounds when they are turned all the way to the left or right. If this sound happens at first start up, but not while you’re driving, the "new parts" issue might be the cause. If this sound persists over the next month or so, please contact one of our mobile mechanics to complete a car is making a noise inspection so they can determine if there are any mechanical faults or issues that require adjustment or replacement.
