Answer HAVE SOMEONE WATCH AS YOU TURN THE WHEEL. IF YOUR SPRING MOVES, THE PROBLEM IS ACTUALLY AN EASY FIX. THERE IS A RUBBER GASKET ON THE TOP OF THE SPRING THAT WILL WEAR OUT OVER TIME AND CAN BE REPLACED. THIS WILL MAKE A KIND OF THUMPING SOUND AS YOUR TURN. IT HAPPENED TO MINE. THEY HAD TO COMPRESS THE SPRING TO REPLACE IT. IT'S FAIRLY EASY AND INEXPENSIVE.

Bad ball joints, tierod ends- need to get it checked- ASAP

-My mechanic said it was the strut bearings.

Possibly your CV joints as well. more of a clicking sound though

***Appended answer - check your control arm bushings. They (on a Venture) have a tendancy to wear out and cause fore/aft play (thus the popping noise when applying sudden forward force or aggressive stop (vs only hitting bumps). These are relatively inexpensive to change and fix and could be done by the average user if you go to your local parts store and get the alldata on how to do it. I recommend you do both sides at the same time vs one at a time as they often will wear out together (right side is usually more vulnerable).

It is definitely the strut bearings, they are known for this problem on this van.
