Steering problem?!?

noticed when im driving fairly slow if i turn the steering wheel to the right and then to the left hear a huge "CLUNK" or thud like sound..my father mentioned that it could be a problem with the "ball joints" or "tie rods".. im not too familiar..any advice?

my friend just bought a 94 cherokee and there is a popping/clunk noise when making a left hand turn and sometimes when starting foward.... the driver side tie rod and ball joints have just been replaced and the mechanic didnt see anything wrong with the other side... could it be the other side needs work too?
