Its like a knock and click combined turning on an incline

Asked by Oct 18, 2016 at 08:06 AM about the 2008 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It seems to happen when I am already in a turn and I have to go up or down a  
semi-steep incline, such as pulling onto a side road or driveway. It seems to
happen whenever I have to make minute adjustments to steering while in this
turn. I feel it through the steering wheel. Also before I got my brakes fixed the
vibration would cause a knocking that felt like it was hitting the airbag.
