Clunking sound from front end

I have a 2000 wj and recently when turning left I hear a clunking/popping sound coming from the front end. Only when turning left though. I tried to locate where it was coming from and it looks like maybe the drag link. I am not sure if the drag link is supposed to be loose, but mine is a little loose. I've been reading up on it and it looks like maybe the drag link ends need replacing. Does this sound like the problem? Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Mine makes a similar sound only when i turn left. Mine is caused because i put BFG 30/9.5 A/T's without a lift, so im rubbing my tread against my wheel well.

check your rear a arm bushings and you rrear control arm bushings.

also check your shock mount bolts, for looseness or play .

pm me for any other question i'd be glad to help. mine clunked in the rear for a while all new bushings ( control arms, a arm and sway bar bushings solved the problem )

i did once get gravel in my e brake which took ages to figure out the source of the sound :/ that was not cool !
