Sketchy knocking noise!

When I'm stopped and turn the wheel on my jk it makes like a knocking/rubbing noise! What could the be? Could it be because I still have the stock steering stabilizer on with my lift? Thanks in advance

Poor steering stabilizer gets blamed for everything and does so very little lol

Could be a number of things. Best thing to do is have someone else turn the wheel back and forth while you get down in front and listen. Steering stabilizer mount could be hitting diff cover. Tie rod ends could be shot. Track bar bolt could be loose or hole wallowed. And on and on...
