My father-in-law's Grand Prix has developed a knock from the passenger front when he turns. I forget which way he said he is turning when it happens. I did notice when we did his brakes a few years ago that the front bushing in the control arm on that side was tearing. I don't have any better description of the sound at the moment. What are the possibilities?

My first guess would be a bad axle joint. The control arm bushing could be a culprit but they usually "clunk" over bumps...the noise while turning sounds like the CV axle joint to me.
