Strange clunking at low speeds when wheel is being turned*video attached*

Hi guys I've had a lot of work done on my jeep and a lot of money spent and the problems just keep coming,my latest problem is a strange clunking (not ball joints or control arms I had both sides replaced) when steering wheel is turning to the right or left at slow speed like underground car park speed,any help with this is greatly appreciated I'm over 5 g's deep in repairs and I bought the jeep 3 months ago just can't force myself to sell it,she's a beaut I'm gonna attach a video I took in our underground car park( https://youtu.be/EKkoWgVa2hU)

Before watching your video, based on your description, I would say either wheel bearings or CV shafts.


After watching the video, it sounds like a bolt didn't tightened when somewhere.

yea that's what I was thinking also,some thing silly like that,I had the rack and pinion replaced when I first bought and it seems to be coming from that area and especially when steering is turning but I don't know

Sounds like what mine did when the front diff fluid was old and the additive had worn out. After a drain and fill it took a bit for the new fluid to fully circulate but once it was it was good to go.

Jesus I'd love if that was the case,my mechanic just changed bushing on front diff and changed fluid and I hope he added the addictive,but since I got it back 4 days ago it has gotten a lot worse

So I just tried the jeep while it was running but in park and the bang still happened on slow turn of the steering wheel to the right?

Probably not the diff fluid then. If you can do it in park can you have someone make the noise while you crawl underneath and listen for it? Does it make the sound with the key in and the engine off?

Mine was doing something like this a few years ago when I had similar work done. I can't remember which part of the tie rod it was... one of them was not tightened down enough, and caused a popping/clunk sound. Wish I could be more specific, I just don't remember. I do know that I drove on it for a few weeks (not driving everyday) trying to figure it out. This caused an entire tie rod, inner and outer, to be replaced. Eventually, I was able to jack up the entire front end and wiggle the driver side Tire left and right without moving the passenger side Tire. It made steering a little interesting... and then back to Firestone for an alignment. Love the lifetime alignment.

Check the control arm bolt. Mine were loose as they are adjusters for caster and camber on alignment. Shop never tightened then enough

Thanks guys I spent a couple of hours last night trying to get to the bottom of it and it seems to be coming from the middle of the under carriage,like where the engine cover is under the jeep,I had rack and pinion replaced and I'm pretty sure mechanic removed the steering box to do this,is it possible that this could be the source

I know its a different car but I had a similar problem on my '14 cherokee, although mine didnt pop as loud. Turned out to be a bad CV shaft. luckily it was still under warranty. It was hard to pinpoint where it was coming from as it would echo off the ground
