snapping sound while turning?
 
when i turn(usualy a realy sharp turn) or when i hit a bump just right it the front of the car makes a wierd snapping/clunking sound. ball joints or tierods maybe? what els could it be? and what would happen if i dont replace them for a while(a month or two)?




and i didnt know where to put this so i just stuck it here. lol.

Ball joints/tie rods are a good place to start :deal

Nah . . most likely the sway bar. a lot of American cars do that. Check the bushings on it.

Naw, the sway bar = anti roll bar. It keeps the car more level in cornering. It runs across to both sides

Yet another reason to consider not buying the t-bird is what this sounds like.

The sway/anti roll bars will hook up both sides of the suspension and do what witeshark said.
