C/V joint needs replaced. Check the right (pass side) drive axle joints. If the joint boots (plastic folded like an accordion) have cracks in them, the water and dirt gets in and destroys the joint causing a knock..especially when turning. Check the transmission mount also since this will also cause a knock when putting it in reverse but won't make a noise while driving. As a sidenote, if the joint is worn out, check your warranty...this could be covered by Dodge.

A single knocking noise when braking or turning can be caused by a faulty axle. The cost of replacement is usually around 1,000 dollars.

Bad CV joints. Replace the CV joints.

Could be the CV joint is dry or has failed.

I'm confused, do you mean when you are going in reverse or turning the engine over in reverse direction?

could be your steering is messed up for the turning. but for the transmission you could have blown piston

your cv boot has torn and needs replacement

try cleaning the throttle body
