What car?

It could be one of a few things, but saying what car may help.
Could be worn ball joints.

Is it both ways or predominently one side?

Probably best to get a mechanic to give it a quick check over.
cv joints
Drive shaft!! Is it like a clicking noise?
for reference its a honda civic and its done 40k miles
naeem think of a noise that goes click & clunk at the same time and thats the noise lol i would lean to more the clunk noise

Ok, well I don't know the civic, but it can be the top suspension mounts.
Could be many things........personally i'd take it to the garage in the morning and get them to have a look for you.

They'll be able to tell you after a quick waggle and feel. :-D
steering rack?

Get them to have a look and tell you what it is and quote you and then tell them you'll get other quotes and get back to them after you've rung round.

have you got large alloy wheels on the car?
one or both front suspension springs broken if it happens when stationary or cv joints if on lock when moving.

think only happens when moving i mean i dont turn the wheel when stationary so wouldnt know
If it clicks on full lock it's probably cv joints as said before
