clunking sound only when turn right

Guys need help, (front left) having clunking sound only when turning right, straight or left is perfect only when turning right - sound like really bad bearing but when straight and left it silence any idea? i think it could be outer parts of the shaft, but its only when right, should it making sound in any direction? (144k km QD2 5.7)

I had similar noise. Was a missing bolt off the engine skid plate.

I have the same issue, but when turning left. I replaced driver side ball joint, and cv axle, the noise got better but still there. Another weird thing is that if i turn my steering wheel about half of a turn to the left, and wiggle it there is also some sort of noise, right now im thinking its rack and pinion related. It all sounds like a ball joint on a pot hole. Obviously there is also noise when hitting the bump stop, but this noise occurs before that.

stabilizer bar bushings, lower control arms rear bushings, strut mounts - only 1 problem "lower control arms rear bushing" can't get oem only with arm like a set, if auto-market - i fished around - only oem and Taiwan making inner parts just rubber, all others making with tube - that #%%t does squeaks on bumps, only 1 solution - weld-it, oem arms each 750$ its not crazy (ebay with shipping ~600$ to my place)

with my problem im looking on it over a 20k km and its stay the same and not louder, i dont know what to do with it - idk what is that and its stupid - when you reversing - there no sound

Both of my LCAs are brand new, MOOG parts from rockauto. I'm running Bwoody links as well. All bushings are in good condition. May be i will check the wheel bearing next.

The reason why i don't think its a wheel bearing though, is because if it was it would make noise no matter which direction you turn or go straight.

That is how mine was before it failed. Let your mechanic diagnose it.

well, i spoke yesterday with chrysler mechanic and guys said:"it could be any of moving parts most like its a bearing- because sound coming only when car is moving and angled apposite of normal direction- bearing under stress and grounded only that aria where it has damage that's why i can't hear it at any other direction" - i think he's right it can be a bearing, but here no 100% answer...

Very true. You get awesome performance when it works, and it sucks when it doesn't. Total gambler's ride. Right now, I'm winning, as all the issues with mine are either not worth messing with, or fixed. Enjoying it...for today.

Hey guys, first post. I'm getting the same type of noise on my freshly purchased WK. It's usually when I'm turning through bumps. I can do it on command by swerving hysterically left and right while slowly going over a speed bump or up a driveway.

Gonna attempt this tomorrow, if i find that weird torx socket somewhere.

I was also at globex today they changed all the tie rods, and the whole front end looks pretty stiff... so hopefully this will solve it
