Right Turning (Tie Rod?) Noise??

When I do a sharp slow (or fast) right turn with my 96 avalon, i hear a low knocking noise on the RF tire area. I bought 4 new tires yesterday. they said my tie rod end is STARTING to wearing out, but no need to change or replace it. Is that true? The noise is annoying. and it is my wife car, just want to be sure. Could anyone give me some idea? should I take it to check by others? Thank you.

Most often, a knocking or clicking noise when turning sharply is from worn out CV joints on the drive axles. Making noise when turning right means it's the driver's-side axle.

I had an awful noise in my 97 Avalon when I turned sharp right at low speed. I had severe tire wear issues on the outside edges from slop in the front end suspension. I replaced tie-rod ends and struts at the same time and the noise disappeared. I believe the tire was rubbing something, but never determined exactly what caused the noise.

Did your old tires have unusual wear patterns? Watch your new tires for unusual wear.
