Clunking/ticking noise from left front when turning left at low speed

Hi, I've had my 2017 Volt in three times now (two different dealers) for this issue and they have not been able to fix. Issue happens when I'm turning left at low speed, like leaving my parking garage at work or at a sharp downhill left at the bottom of my street. Sounds like a bad CV joint, but seems not to happen under power, but when coasting. It's especially loud when there is less weight on the left wheel (car is leaning right and the road goes downhill).
The car drives ok, but the sound is obvious and bad. I've had different friends in the car say "what is that" which means a prospective buyer would ask the same thing.
So far the dealers have "re-torqued the suspension" twice and replaced the left sway bar link. None of that has made a difference.
Any ideas or suggestions of where to go next?

Wondering the same on my 2018 Volt with only 2.5K miles that started clicking while turning the steering wheel back and forth while stopped. I just posted a video on it linked below. Probably need to turn up the volume to hear it better--the fuzzy sound is just the rain.

I put my hand on the sway bar end links while someone moved the steering wheel back and forth, and that's my best guess based on the vibrations/noise feeling, but we'll see....Bringing it to the dealer Thursday. Only hoping it's not one of those times that the car decides not to make the noise of course.
