2003 Saturn Ion Question: crunching noise while turning, cornering

 

Question

Crunching, metal to metal, noise occurs when turning or cornering. I checked the boots and other steering linkages and everything seems intact. Could the coil springs be the culprit?

    Does the noise occur when you turn the wheel with the car stopped? If so, have someone turn the wheel and try to locate the noise. Pop the hood and make sure it's not coming from the top of the struts. Good Luck!
