Angry Suspension Clunk

2000 986 Replaced front strut bushings, tie rod ends and installed new Bielsteins as well.
Now a clunking sometimes appears when backing and turning the steering while car is parked .Sounds like a boing sound from the springs?
Any help on figuring what this could be will be greatly appreciated.

You've got control arms up there too. Could be those.

If you're like me, you can't stand strange noises and replacing every single thing over a period of months is the way to isolate and fix suspension noises.

See if a friend can turn the wheel while the front of the car is up on ramps and you're below with a hand on various parts to determine which component is making the noise.

New motor, transmission, suspension, and on and on and on it goes...
