Default Clunk in front end.

Hello, I have a '93 lwb with approx. 90k miles. When I make a tight right turn (into parking space etc,) I get a clunking noise in front end. Any ideas? Thanks.

How loud is the clunk?

It could be tie rod ends just old and they pop when you crank the steering wheel. It could possibly be the CV's going out.

If it is a CV joint. I have a page on my site about what you're in for.
If the clunk is just once while you are turning is probably a tie rod or pitman like the guys say above. If it clunks and makes a sorta grinding noise. It's likely you are in need of a CV joint. You don't want to wait on any of these.

Before you panic on the CV joint, which is probablt making the noise, check the levels on both side, fill them up and go drive, you may not have damaged them yet.

Well it seems as though it only clunks one time, not very loud, and more so when I begin to straighten wheel after turning all the way to lock. Does this make sense?

Disco Mike is uber wise!
Make sure you have grease in there for sure. Mine get a lot quieter with grease in there.
