some clunk noise when cornering

Well ok recently I lowered my whip with the tein lowering springs (1.5F, 1.3R) and it been running very nicely with its stiffness and less body roll. Not to mention the fact that it looks 10x better than stock. But ok recently I've been hearing some clunk sounds when I do some tight turns. It happens like 1or two times a day. I went to talk to some guy at autozone and he told me that it my axles and that if I dont get a camber kit, it will blow. Ok so let me tell you that visually it looks like my car has slanted wheels and I was planning to get a camber kit and shocks put in in the future but do you guys suppose getting it earlier than thought? Do you suppose this guy was right?

A knocking sound could mean that your CV joins are on their way out, but that would've been making noises before you installed the springs. Did you first notice the noise straight after installation?

No actually Ive been noticing them for a long time now. But since I installed the springs, the noise comes out more often. Oh I forget to say that when I go trough a slow bump I hear a squeek noise you know the noise that your hear when your coming in and out your bed. That I've been hearing before but like the clunk noise, it seems like its getting worse.

Yeah man, that sounds like your CV axles are gonna go soon. I woiuld get the camber kit ASAP and get an alignment, and also replace the axle(s) irregardless...

The squeek thing sounds like shocks though... lowering springs on stock shocks is only gonna make them crap out faster...

Alright I was looking into some camber kits but I don't know if I should get the front set only or the all four wheels..What you guys think about Ingalls or SPC brand? Do they both work the same? If I do get should I install it with the people that aligned my wheels at the same time?

Im almost positive its the axles, because I just had mine done 2 weeks ago and it sounds like (from the small **** you said) its an axle. mine started clicking once or twice a day. then it moved to every time i turned. just be careful. you dont want to break an axle, cuz then the car wont be movable without a tow.

And are you asking if you should get it aligned also? or who should do it?

I got my car aligned right after, just for good measure. And whoever you want to do it, if thats what you were asking. I got a price estimate for mine (150 for one wheel. 75 for axle, 75 for labor) but I ended up doing it myself. Find a small shop, they usually give the best prices. stray from pep boys n ****.

F*#k pep boys, I paid them more than $400 to do my brakes. When I hit the brakes my steering starts shaking and they're trying to say it's my rims (never had that prob till that day). You can camber just the front but all 4 might be playing it safe (i'd just do the front personally).
