There is a chance the steering stop could use a little grease on it. These will make a grinding noise if you hit a bump with the front wheels while the steering is a full lock. Either or both sides can do it.
Terry, while turning at left or right lock in my 9C1, even if the pavement is flat (could be a little rippled, but no bumps) I get the pop sound from whichever side is inside of the turn (happens to be the side that is hitting the steering stop. I'm going to lube my stops as soon as I get a chance, so I guess we'll see. I had previously thought it was my wheel bearings because while moving foward at lock, it does multiple POP-BANGs type stuff. We shall see.
