Hi folks,

I posted months ago about this but never really heard anything. I've since done some repairs but the issue still persists.

Here's the deal:

When I make a hard left turn (almost full turning radius and quick, say if you're pulling in to parking space that's tight or busting a U-turn!) I get a loud scraping noise. Real quick, but very noticeable. "Scrrrrrrape!" It's intermittent.

I took it to my mechanic and he noted that I needed front brakes and rotors and that a heat shield was bent which could be causing the issue. I got all that repaired and while the braking is so much nicer, the scraping still continues.

I've been told by some friends perhaps it's a boot or CV joint, but I'm wondering if anyone on here has some thoughts.
