Clunk in Front passenger side wheel when turning halfway while backing up
Just 5 days ago, I have my wheels changed to 22s with 255/30 Nitto tires.
So I took the car out for a drive after the wheels were installed (delivered and installed in my garage) .
Then when I got home and I had to park the car back to my garage. I always back up when parking my car so it faces the road for easy exit when I want to drive it out.
While backing up I have to turn the wheel almost to lock in order to straighten and align my car to my gate and I hear this clunk sound when I am backing up while turning either left or right. I wont hear it when its just a slight turn but I hear it at about 75% turn. I can feel the steering wheel stiffen a bit then if i force to turn it it will make that sound at that certain turn. EVen when I rotate the wheel back to center I would hear it again. But this only happens when I am backing up.
No sound at all when you turn even to full lock left or right when car is moving forward or when the car is not in motion.
This sound comes from the front passenger side wheel well. There is no tire rubbing at all.
My car is a 2005 300c Hemi. Stock suspension not lowered. Please help me so I can at least try to solve it myself if I can.
