It makes a rub/clang typ noise when turning into parking spots, drive thrus, u-turns... This does not sound like power stearing winding, it's a metal sound.

    Your description sounds like the 'steering stop". Located usually on the bottom of the knuckle or lower control arm. This is where the steering knuckle contacts the frame when the steering is turned to "Full Lock" in either direction. A dab of grease at this contact point will eliminate this if this is the cause of your concern. If you have oversized tires, the tires may be rubbing the frame rails.

    I had this once. It turned out that the dealer forgot to a required additive after replacing differential oil.
