Best Answer

most likely a broken shock absorber

or a shock absorber leveling spring

it is most likely the CV joints and there is no such thing as a shock leveling spring.

Aren't CV joints sort of notorious for making a sound on the side opposite of the direction you're turning? I would have joints and boots checked.

answer sounds like shock absorber problem

It may also be an intermediate shaft that needs lube. Common on Some GM vehicles.

sway bar endlinks could be loose or damaged. especially if this is happening at low speeds (driveway) and only when you turn in one direction

How come my 94 ford mustang has a knocking tapping sound coming from the intake manifold what in the heck could it be?

generally it isn't really coming from the intake rather it is echoing from the engine through components into the intake. the intake is hollow so it echoes most sounds making it seem noises come from the intake when most of the time it's not the part making noise. check your oil level. if you have OHC's that could be a next place to check
