Is this turning the wheel while stationary, or driving thru a turn? A bad CV joint will make a loud knocking noise driving thru a turn but usually wont vibrate much. In my experience at the audi dealership I worked for, its difficult to get the correct replacement shaft the first time. If you have the wrong length shaft it could be binding and casing noise/vibrations.
If its making noise while tuning the wheel at a stop, it could be air in the power steering, or dry ball joints/tie rod ends.
