Suspension Noise 2015 718 Cayman

I just purchased this vehicle from the local Porsche dealership as a certified pre-owned car. When I took delivery I noticed that when turning full lock (either way) I would get a loud tire scrape sound or a suspension wind-up noise. I asked the salesman about this in the first week and was told, "You could drive any of the cars on this lot and they would do the same thing". I took that as gosple until winter came a few months later.

PASM not working, 981 Cayman S

PASMicon on my new to me 2016 CS seems always on. The light on the PASM button dutifully turns off and on but neither I nor the techs at the local dealer can tell the difference in ride between on and off.

Noise when turning Wheels at idle and on Dry Pavement

My 2008 Cayman Base makes a grinding noise when turning wheels lock to lock, it happens when parking and at engne idle. I took it into my local Porsche dealer and they diagnosed that the sterring rack was leaking. They replaced the sterring rack, tie rods and associated parts for a total  of $2800.00. The sterring feels fine to me at drive speeds but I'm still hearing the same noise turning the wheels at idle and the feeling in the sterring column and sterring wheel remains after the work was done.
