Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
During low speed turns, or if i go over a small bump and the steering wheel moves a bit there's a huge clunking sound coming from the front end, and also sounds like it's coming from in the steering column? this happens on any turn, sharp or not, fast or slow, left or right.
Check for loose steering box / rack. Check all steering ball joints and suspension joints. have a steering specialist shop check it out as steering problems border on safety

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.

Make sure that the coupling shaft from the column to the rack is tight at both ends. There is a pinch bolt on the ends. If they are tight try holding the shaft while turning. You will probably feel the clunking noise. If so replace the shaft.
