What kind of noise do they make when this happens? What does it sound like.

@VIM it kinda sounds like the noise of a squeaky bed when u turn the wheel when it's not moving. Mechanic at dealer kind of admitted it's an issue with these cars, but I'm not sure if it's the car or the dealers mechanics not doing the replacement correctly . Other than this issue I like the car and its ride.

My 2013 had the same issue at 40K, Dealer replaced as part of recall. I hope yours is free as a recall too!

I noticed that even after apparently replacing them in my Sorento, the clunking from the front end is still there. Wonder if the parts are defective or if they even replaced them.

Had front suspension clunking noise at 64000 km. Dealer replaced both struts mounts and both links, all under warranty coverage. Noise gone.

Yup its a known issue bad Strut bearings seals , Mine does it too.
Sounds like an old ship skweeeek, Normally after backing and turning on the forward motion.
Mine started not even six months after I got her, It comes and goes.
Water , salt and gunk gets into the defective bearing and she squeaks.
Pop the rubber off the top of the strut look carefully notice the very slight rust residue on the edge of the washers?
All of this could be easily avoided with a grease nipple, but no, not the cars these days, no nipples anymore...
Cars today as designed as 'disposable cars'

However clunking is a more serious issue, get things looked at right away if the well is moving or twisting with the strut.
