My 1999 Golf 2 door makes a sort of noise when I turn the wheel at very low speed (stopped or just a couple MPH)
It sounds like a spring going "kabong"

I took the wheel off and everything looks okay, there isnt any play when i grab at the top and bottom and pull back and forth, nor any play when i grab the sides and go back and forth....

A friend said it could be a CV joint, but it doesnt make a clicking or grinding noise, just a "kabongggg" which is sort of loud...

Could it be suspension?
I am currently too broke to go to a dealership, and I am well versed in working on tractors but I dont know much about cars....

Any help?

I should say it is only on the front right side
