Default Loud Clunking/Whining Sound When Turning

hey 6th gen fam, my 04 maxi is making a nasty clunking/whining sound everytime I turn. It makes a lot of noise especially when it's cold, I know it's something with my suspension, not my power steering. Any ideas? Strut top? Can't seem to figure out this noise and its annoying the hell out of me lol. Thanks in advance fam!

Clunking can come from bad struts or bad cv axles,joints etc, the whining I can only suspect is a power steering hose leak even though you said it's not that
