If when turning the steering and you hear a clunking sound this could be any part of the steering ,but most likely you have a ball joint issue .
Have the ball joints checked , other possible issue could be:
1.Tie rod ends.
2.Rack ends.
3.Steering rack bushings bad, this you will have a lot of play in the steering wheel.
4.Lower control arms bushings .
Steering rack internal gear failure.
