pinging noise

Just looking for some direction as how to track down this noise. When I turn my steering wheel while driving at a slow rate of speed like when I park, there is a noise that comes from the pasanger side suspension area. It is only when I turn really slow or hit like a bump while turning, it it multiple small little pings.it is not a banging noise but a metallic "ting ting ting" noise if that makes sense. I have DGR coilovers on my car with stock everything else. I put them on about 10 months ago as well as new sway are end links (stock length) and had no strange noises up until a couple weeks ago. I took the wheel off and shook everything with no obvious problems. Anyone had this noise before? and what was the solution? Thanks for any help

Check the torque on those sway bar links. What brand links did you use? The advance auto parts brand sucks, this I know from personal experience. The moogs are the best. Those links can make all different sorts of sounds

yeah they're the autozone kind probably not the best. The noise sounds sort of like rolling over on a bed with the spring board underneath lol
