SOURCE: when turning steering wheel - either way, clunking sound.

Sounds like you have a bad CV joint, this will make a clunking or clicking noise like you described only when turning, and varies with vehicle speed.

Have it repaired before it breaks and leaves you stranded, or damages anything else.

CLUNK IN STEERING SHAFT


Sounds like this vehicle may have had some suspension or accident damage. It needs to be put up on a lift, engine running while someone turns the steering wheel back and forth, a second technician under the vehicle inspecting for where the interference exists when the clunking happens. I don't recommend driving this vehicle.

Pitman arm or steering box clunks when steering back and forth.Steering box shaft on pitman arm seems like play in it.


There is an adjustment on the steering box.You will see a stud with a nut on top. Loosen the nut,and turn the stud with a screwdriver while moving the steering wheel back and forth. Don't tighten too tight,as the steering wheel won't return to center when turning a corner. If that doesn't stop the clunk,you will need to change out the steering box.

Clunking noise near power rack when turning wheel back and forth


Inspect inner and Outter tie rod ends. This may be done with the wheels on or off. Have another person **** the sterring wheel L/R while nother person holds on to the rod ends. Feel for excess play or try shaking the steering rod, if its loose replace inner and outter rod ends.

1997 Buick LeSabre has squeak noise coming from right front.


More likely this is a wheel bearing or CV joint than suspension components.

One good indication is if, when your making a right turn or accelerating, there is a shudder or shaking in the steering wheel then its likely a wheel bearing.

Another good indicator can be found when you jack up the suspicious wheel. Put one hand on the top of the wheel and one on the bottom and pull back and forth. If the wheel makes a clunking noise and moves in either direction, then wheel bearing is shot.

Noise coming from the front end of my 2003 dodge durango


You didn't specify if your vehicle is 2- or 4-wheel drive. If 4 wheel, you may have a failing contstant velocity joint which, when having developed worn spots in the cage can cause the noise you describe.
Typically, turning the wheel back and forth can cause the noise to become less or more loud and often the combination of a specific speed and driving a certain curve radius can cause the noise to nearly disappear or become more pronounced.

Jeep Grand Cherokee 2004 front end clunking


It would be kind of hard to explain, but you may want to check your wheel bearings. Sounds like your wheel is binding. If you jack the front up, grab your tire, and shake. Sort of like you are trying to turn the wheel your self with out the steering wheel. Then do the same up and down. If you have a lot of play, then your wheel bearing is shot. And with a 4WD, you have to replace it because its sealed, where as on a 2WD, you can tighten them. For the pitman arm, and the gear box, you may have to get a haynes manual to find. But the gear box will be the box that your steering shaft goes into and connects to the tierods. Not too hard to find.
