So, a structural deficiency is likely not the issue. We'll find out when I install the updated strut brace next week.
Yeah I'm pretty sure I could turn the wheel all day and not hear a groan from the suspension but the tires wouldn't like that unless you were moving while turning. However breaks in the pavement definitely excite something in the chassis in a bad way to generate the "clunk" / thud/ rattle/ loud noises.
