Was there anything on the road that could have made the noise? Like the tire was sitting on something?? Just a suggestion.

Did the bang happen right away as you started turning back from full lock, or part way through the turn?

Dude Im having the same sound or problem but up front, getting it checked out this week, Almost sounds like I have a busted shock, front is real noise going over railroad tracks etc, ruff places in roads real noticeable, Sounds like my front end is bottoming out, Feels like a lowered car lowered wrong

I'm getting that same busted front shock feeling/sound, but that is besides the point.
Your 3 point turn, did it happen to be on uneven, sloped ground? Just a stab in the dark, but I wonder if its the steering stops. They will pop/grind when at full lock turns (but usually not as loud as you discribed)
