    When the turning cycle is initiated, the steering makes one thick metallic clunk, right as the turning starts and rotates off-enter. THis applies to both directions. Would this be the rack-and-pinion, or could it possibly be a slightly less intimate fix, such as the sway bar?

    I've got a '99 base 9-3 and I'm fairly certain nobody's touched the suspension since it was manufactured. I eventually plan on dropping it down a bit on Koni Yellows and springs (the proper way) but that's a ways off financially. I'd like to know the most beneficial upgrades I can make with...
