Default JDM V7 STI 6MT Questions Help

Well after getting most of the problems fixed, a new one seems to pop up.

I've got an:

02 JDM V7 STI 6MT into my 08 FXT Sports.

I used:

04 STI diff carrier
04 STI Steering rack
04 STI F/R crossmembers and removed the fxt spacers
04 STI Aluminum arms

02 JDM V7 STI Driveshaft
02 JDM V7 STI Rear R180 diff
02 JDM V7 STI Brembro system
02 JDM V7 STI Axles
02 JDM V7 STI Shifter assembly, new exedy clutch, resurfaced flywheel, resued pressure plate.
6MT Group N Tranny mount

A knocking banging gremlin noise at very very low speeds (1-5mph) while turning hard left or right into parking spaces or going up driveways or parallel parking. Sometimes it will show up in reverse as well while turning, backing up into a parking spot. I can't seem to figure out what is bad, or causing the noise. It feels like the center diff is bad or the angle of driveshaft is off or something.

It wont do it when driving straight or high speeds or cornering. Only when turning hard left or right at slow speeds like in a parking lot. It will also continue this sound when I put the tranny into neutral and coast into a parking sport turning hard left or right. Or could it be a tranny fluid flush needed? I seem to recognize that when the tranny is cold it wont do it but when its nice and warmed up or hot it will produce the issue again while turning very hard to the point where steering wheel is locked right or left making the maneuver.

Any help appreciated.

Clunking is the center diff. V2 has the old style and they are know for clunking making tight turns and or turning into drive ways
