Skipping / Shuddering on U-Turn?

Anyone notice a skipping / shuddering feeling from the front when making a sharp turn / u-turn? Iíve had same since new, thought it was normal due to the wide 20 inch wheels, but it's annoying and I'm wondering...

Might have something to do with your front axles. Sounds like the same symptoms FWD cars get when a CV joint is bad.

Wow; not good! It's when rolling and the steering is at its extreme or near extreme articulation. Best way to describe it is that itís a 'hopping' feeling where the car doesn't feel Ďplantedí on the ground, as it isnít smoothly rolling; minimal, but there since new. Thanks for your reply.
