Why would there be a thumping noise whenever I turn my 1992 Ford Tempo to the left or shift it into Drive from Reverse or Park and the noise seems to come from under the drivers seat somewhere?

The clicking noise when you turn is probably one of your CV (constant velocity) joints - it's a mechanical coupling which transmits torque of a rotating shaft (e.g. a driveshaft) at an angle. A lot of cars made in the 90's have them near the front axle, which would sound like it was right under the drivers' seat.
