Cherokee Classic 1 clunk sound

1998 Cherokee Classic is making 1 loud clunk sound when turning. It happens only a few times a day. I had never heard it till about 4 days ago and since then have heard it a total of about 7 times. Theres not clicking or multiple clunks. Its just one loud clunk. CV joint, ball joint, tie rod?? Not sure on what it is and how to diagnose it.

To figure this out jack up the front end put it on jack stands. Grab each tire one hand at the top(12 o'clock) the other hand at the bottom (6 o'clock) to check ball joints for tie rod ends have a helper rotate the steering wheel while you look for play in the joints. Aside from that it is pretty much just get dirty under the Jeep putting your hands on stuff and if all else fails you can have some one drive past you and turn turn the jeep while you watch and listen might be able to see or hear something not being in the vehicle.

Good luck hope that helps.
