Thunk sound

Hello everyone. I have a 2007 Honda Accord coupe v6. Sometimes when I turn my wheel when I'm parking or getting out a parking. I hear a loud thunk noise on the driver side of the vehicle. But it does not make that noise when I'm turning while driving. Could it be an axle? Thanks I appreciate it.

whole thing is easier. Depending on where you live if things are rusty or not you may want to pick up the bolts for it as well in case one breaks. Better safe than sorry. If you dont use them then return them.

Honda is going to be expensive. I bought a moog one on amazon that I installed in my girlfriends car for a lot less. Call Honda and check pricing and also check out BKhondaparts.com you might be able to get one through them shipped for cheaper than your local dealer. That is if you can wait for the part. DO NOT buy a cheap one from a parts store. It will be CRAP.

I second the Moog stuff. I have an 8th Gen coupe. My OEM lower front ball joint snapped on me one night on my way home. I did some research and found that Moog makes what is called problem solver parts. These parts are vastly better than OEM. I did a side by side comparison of the parts. Inside and out. The problem solvers are much thicker. They need to be to take the stress that is had at some of these undercarriage parts. Though, not all parts have a problem solver item. In that case, just regular Moog parts are more than adequate. I purchase my Moog parts either from Rock Auto or, Advance Auto Parts. If you purchase from Advanced Auto online, you can find cupon codes that give great deals. Then have them shipped to your closest Advanced Auto for pickup. And, I belive it eliminates the shipping costs.

Edit: Did not see the part where the OP said that they are getting it done. My bad.
