turning noise...?

so recently I have noticed that when I do sharp turns (left or right) i hear a noise that sounds like something is rubbing against something else, and sometimes I hear a popping/cracking noise. I havent noticed any change in how the car drives, but i'm concerned about the noise. any ideas?

Do you have tire and rims??? Check balljoints. And tie rod ends. Would also look at control arm bushings while your at it

If your totes and rims are oversized then your tire is most likely rubbing your fenderwell on hard turns. Look at your fenderwell and look for rub marks. And I don't know how to explain the other stuff too you. But a good shop might not charge to diagnose your front end for you.

It could still rub if you've lowered it. Check just to be sure.

Power steering fluid... Did that on my jeep, but I refilled it and the noise is gone.

Ball joints- are one piece that allows the wheel to move in basic terms a quick Google search can explain it better. Think like your hip is connected to your pelvis but there's a ball there.
How many miles are on it?

Edit: Stupid phone kept cutting me off..

Ahha. Wait what were we talking about? We got off topic.. hold on.

So do you notice any vibration in the wheel? For example if you hold the steering wheel lightly on smooth road does it kind of shake? Is it pulling when you brake ? Is the pedal mushey?

Have you changed the tires recently? If so did you get a bigger and/or wider size?

Brake would be mushey. I bet this is a classic case of power steering fluid needing to be flushed. Maybe the pump is going bad. If that's not the problem then I'd say tie rods. But usually those don't make a noise.
