I am geting a clunking / poping noise when turning and braking I just replaced the front struts and mounts. What can be making the noise?

if you just did front end work, tear the tires back off and check that everything is tight and you don't have a half-in bolt. start with that, report back in. and check the strut tower mounts up top in the engine bay also.
start there

Everything is tight I made sure of that. I replaced the struts because I thought that was where the noise was coming from but still there if not worse.

Does it do it in a straight line ever? or is it only when turning? does it do it worse to one side or the other?

as for braking, does it do it straight line stopping and turning while braking? or just one or the other?

It does it when braking in a stright line but more so when turning and braking.

Something isn't bolted back up right...

You sure nothing is rubbing on something? Check for anything near the CV axles.

that's what i'm thinking... something has to be backed out a bit...

Its not that everything is tight, it just makes noise when turning and when your sitting in traffic and stoping and going and also when turning. Liike I said nothing is lose with the struts unless there is a defect with the mounts.

Check Swaybar links and swaybar bushings. Those can cause those type of sounds.

Also check transmission/motor mounts.
