A couple knocks when turning right

I don't know if it's the CV joints or Tie Rod Ends or something else but when I take a right and accelerate during the turn (hard right) I will hear a knock or pop and sometimes I will hear 2 or 3 knocks. It's a 2010 G6 GT with 35,000 miles. Anybody have the answer for this?

these G6's always have front end problems, im having the same issue right now with my Gxp, they gave me the wrong axle mines shorter than the oem. Lift it up with a jack and take a look at that first, have someone steer it while your looking.

Are you sure it's the wrong axle? Often times they ship them compressed to minimize shipping size. It should extend in and out and will likely fit in place of the OEM.
