grinding and popping sharp turns

I got all new suspension and an alignment. Something feels like a grind popping when I steer real hard sometimes feels like something's gonna give out

how far (if any) did it lower? it sounds like its hitting your fenders, steering linkages etc. Best thing to do would be to park it, turn the wheel as hard as you can one way then get under there with a flashlight and see if you can tell if it is rubbing anything, and do that for turning each way.

I had a grinding problem a few months ago turned out to be my lower ball joints. Changed those and haven't heard it since.

Did you put grease on the steeda balljoint before you install it? It happens to me when I forgot to grease it after installation. Try that for a while. Hope it helps
