Exclamation Cluncking/Jerking on hard turn

Hey guys, I've had my Impreza 5-speed for a bit more than 2 years now. It has 130k miles. When I turn hard to the right or left at slow speeds (in a parking lot or turning at a stop light) there is a jerking in the steering wheel as well as a loud clunking noise. First thing I checked was tire pressure which was normal. I took it to my local mechanic because he thought it might be cv axles or maybe low fluid somewhere, but all fluids were good and everything seemed fine under the car. There is also no uneven wear on any of the tires. It also only seems to happen after a semi-long drive (30-40 minutes). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Bill

I'm no expert here, but here are my thoughts if you're saying the CV axles were checked:


- Wheel bearings
- sway bar mounts
- sway bar endlinks


i'm also assuming your differentials are fine...esp. your front differential. now that i mention it, did you have that checked for fluid levels? also, when's the last time you had the diff fluid maintenanced and what specific fluids did you use?



hope you get more feedback and good luck!

I just talked to my mechanic again today an he told me that the diff fluid was the first thing he checked and that it was very clean. I am unsure of the type of fluid that is currently being used. He suggested changing the fluid so what would be the best to run in my car? Are there any brands/weights that are better than what is recommended from factory? It only happens after the car has been driven for a while and it is warm, it never happens when first driving.
Thanks for the help! I appreciate it!
