FRONT RIGHT TIRE AREA

I have a jingling sound coming from underneath the front rightside of the vehicle around the tire area. Also, Everytime I make a sharp left turn, I hear a sound coming from the front right side as if water or something liquid-like is spraying everywhere while I'm driving the car.

Jingling noise sounds like a stabilzer link that is loose or broken. I can provide a pic if you aren't sure about it's location. IF you grab it and try moving it there should be no play. Assuming it is still attached.

Not sure about the other noise, but the power steering pump will create excessive pressure when turned fully. Have someone look in that area while another person " bumps" the hard turn. Do not hold it for more than a second or two in the fully turned position.
