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?

Check tie rod ends for play first both inner and outer. It is usually the outers that wear out first.

I don't think sway bar end links will behave as you are describing but can't hurt to check those as well while under car.

i'm leaning more towards the bearings for the springs have/are seizing..
Yes, aerojon is right it could very well be the bearings at the top of the struts or possibly a broken front spring which is very common on the 9-3.
