sounds like a bad cv shaft. If there is clicking while making a turn, 90% of the time you will need a new cv shaft. The shudder also denotes a bad cv shaft (front axle) Most axle repairs cost up to $400. If you are charged more, find a new mechanic. if the car feels like it floats back and forth (side to side) Be sure to check the control arm bushings. If you are not sure how to inspect them, visit a service center. Any problem in the suspension should be addressed immediatley. Stay safe.

SOURCE: Noise in Susp or Steering ("clunking") Chrysler Town & Country

Pretty common item on those is the upper strut mount & bearing assy. If it sounds like front wheel area. If it feels like it's under your feet, stabilizer bushings. Mounts are about $50 each roughly, but don't try to install yourself unless you have proper compression tools & are experienced at that particular job, as it could get very dangerous.

SOURCE: 2003 Dodge Durango clunking noise in front end can

With the information given this is not a sure solution. Questions that need to be asked is when does this happen, turning at slow speedm high speed, when hitting a pot hole etc? Since you have replaced a lot of things already, assuming you have NEW good quality parts so you did not replace bad parts with new bad parts i would definitelu check the pitman arm. This runs from the stering gear to the tierod. It can give you some good clunks while steering, especially at low speed when there is a lot of resistance. Check it by having someone turning the steering wheel when watchin/feeling it.

Clunking noise when turning steering wheel going slow around corner


A lot of these Chrysler Town and Country vans had issues with the front stabilizer bar end links, usually you wont feel them move if you try to move them by hand, but they will make an awful noise clunk noise when turning or going over bumps slowly, i would suggest replacing the end links and that should take car of your clunking issue. Also the front lower control arm bushings separate as well and can cause this noise as well.... but i would replace the end links as a first step and go from there.... Hope this helps..

There is a cluncking noise in the front end when moving the steering wheel front wheel drive


If you are only hearing this clunking sound when you are turning then you need to have your cv axles replaced. Also known as half-axles. In a truck, these are known as the universal joints. You can take your vehicle to the local tire/front end clinic and they will tell you whether or not, it is worth the fix.

Suspension noise?


If the alignment was checked then the mechanic had to shake down the front end to look for any loose parts that would effect it. Sway bar links on Mazadas commonly make noise and are not checked while doing alignment. (they do not effect tire wear) If you are handy enough to take your front wheels off you can check for play in these joints. There is a bar that runs through your car and connects to either the strut or the lower control arm. Try moving the links that connect the bar up and down to see if there is any play. Usually they loose grease and make clunking noises while force is applied. The strut mounts could also be going bad, but you would here the noise all the time.
