So I just picked up this 1996 Impreza Outback sport 2.2L 5 speed a few weeks ago and I am hearing a clicking/bind/banging in the front end when turning both ways at full lock on dry pavement. I did a bit of research and found it may be torque bind in the front diff? I just reolaced the trans/diff fluid after finding out it was a quart low and dirty, filled it with 80w90 gear oil which seemed to cure the sound for a day but now it's back. Anyone have any suggestions on what this may for sure be or how to cure it?

Could be CV joint. How do your tires look? It may be obvious but if all 4 tires aren't the exact same size (Within 1/4-inch of tire circumference or about 2/32-inch of each other in remaining tread depth.it can and will cause diff stress. When I bought my car it had extremely warn front winters and not so worn rears, I didn't hear any clicking or binding but I found it felt much more "free" when I bought 4 new.
