Default Alignment question?

Okay, I am a newbie... but I searched and browsed posts trying to find an answer before posting this.
I have a stock 99GT and for some time now, it has been having a problem at slow speeds when turning the wheel. When I crank the wheel at slow speeds (like turning into a parking spot) it will clunk like there is bad tire rub or something. I have been told that it is because it is AWD, but think that is BS. About 2 weeks ago, I had new rubber put on and had the shop do an alignment while I was there. What do you know, but the clunking seemed to stop. It wasn't but a week later and the damn phantom clunk is back!
Could something be lose? Any ideas would be helpful.
Thanks for your time

When CV axles go I'm told they make a clicking noise when turning. Otherwise could be torque binding.
