Hi

Im not familiar with this model but it could be either an engine mount or gearbox mount, if it is rear wheel drive then it could be the prop shaft or the prop shaft bearing, very common fault.

hope that helps
Regards
Dan

Here is the Technical Service Bulletin that maybe of help, worth looking into but can't guarantee that it would fix your problem Steering - Steering Column Clunking When Turning TECHNICAL Bulletin No.: 01-02-32-001P Date: November 25, 2009 Subject: Clunk Felt/Noise Heard From Steering Column, Steering Gear and/or Front Of Vehicle During Turning Maneuver and/or Steering Wheel Rotation (Replace Intermediate Shaft As Directed) Models: 2001-2004 Buick Regal 2005-2008 Buick Allure (Canada Only), LaCrosse 2000-2008 Chevrolet Impala 2000-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue 2004-2007 Pontiac Grand Prix Supercede: This bulletin is being revised to add the 2008 Buick LaCrosse/Allure. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-02-32-001O (Section 02 - Steering). Condition Some customers may comment on a clunk type noise coming from the front of the vehicle while driving during a turning maneuver.

1. Locate a large area (parking lot) where the vehicle can be turned in a tight circle. 2. Turn the steering wheel to the right and/or left all the way to the steering lock, then off the steering lock a 1/4 turn. 3. Drive the vehicle approximately 5 km/h (3 mph) in a circle, preferably over rough pavement or seams on the road surface. 4. Drive the vehicle straight ahead at idle speed while applying and releasing the brake pedal. Listen/feel the steering wheel for the clunk/noise condition. 5. If a clunk is felt in the steering wheel, the MOST likely cause is the I-shaft - not the steering gear. Continue with the correction. Correction DO THIS - Replace the intermediate shaft DON'T DO THIS - DO NOT lube the intermediate shaft Replace the existing intermediate shaft

I am getting a huge clunk in the front end of my 1997 Ford F-250 when turning into a driveway with any type of dip to it.


That would be the frame rivets creaking and poking. You need the dealer to address this properly.

Clunk under auto center front when turning left or right


have your CV joints checked. If the CV joint boots crack, the joint will lose all the grease and accumilate dirt. This will cause a metal grind/ping when making turns. If ignored, it may cause the joint to break causing the vehicle to be stationary and unable to move. Hopefully this help!!

Steering clunk


The clunk as you describe could be one of three problems, the steering lower column, the steering gearbox or the constan velocity joints.
The lower steering coloumn viewable from the engine bay below the brake unit has a rubber coupler which breaks and can cause the column to lock up, the steering gearbox which the column mounts to can also fail inside, fiunally the c.v. joints break and will cause intermittant binding of the steering, you need to goto a car park and drive the vehicle full lock left and right and have someone listen for the clunk, if it is coming from the wheel area then its the cv joints.
I would start there, hope this helps

Wrrrrring Sound


Switch tires around and see if sound moves. If it changes wheels, its a tire more than likely, but if it remains at same wheel, I'd say wheel bearing.
