I'm getting a loud clunking/crunching noise from passenger front suspension area - only at full (left) lock - when I'm moving from parking area and going over a bump at very low speed. Doesn't do it on right lock. Lower control arms and tie rods were replaced within last year. I can't see anything obviously bad with the suspension on that corner. What is the most likely cause of that sort of sound ? (CV joint ?)

2006 RangeRover Sport 4.4

Thanks

Really common issue on a lot of cars. It is the steering stop on the lower control arm. If i was to describe it best, the steering knuckle stop is curved and the lower control arm has a nub on it that makes contact when under full lock turns. Easy fix is to just put a spot of grease on the stop and it will keep it from making noise.
