Question Problem, or, 'Don't do that'?

I've noticed a couple times, no, I don't do it or feel it often, that when turning with the wheel at full-lock (left -- haven't tried right), that the car bobs and lurches as though the front right tire is flat and buckling. This occurred in the parking lot at my grocery store.

First time I felt it, I actually jumped out of the car to check the tire - which, of course, was fine.

I figure that what is happening is that the u-joint/CV-joint is being forced to move at it's maximum angle, pushing the suspension up and down.

My question: Is it likely that something is broken/breaking, or should I just not do that (turn at full lock)?

TIA,
