Clunk noise when turning wheel left to right possibly strut mounts?

My car has 170000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. In most cases, a clunking sound when turning the steering wheel is typically an indication of a damaged steering stabilizer bar bushing. However, it can also be a damaged strut mount, tie rod or CV joint that is causing this problem. Before you decide to have parts replaced, it is probably a good idea to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete a car is making a noise inspection, so they can isolate the source of this problem.
