"Click" when steering left & right...

When i am making a 2 or 3 point turn adn have to crank the wheels either all the way left or all the way right, I get a loud CLICK from what I can only assume is something in my steering. Anyone know what this is? I feel it in the steering wheel when it happens too.. Thinking maybe I need a steering brace and stabilizer cuz my tie-rods are in great shape..

There was a loud click/clank noise caused by bad upper ball joints on my 03 2500 4wd.

Quite often it is your axle U-Joint. Jack up your wheel and rotate the tire back and forth and watch the U-Joint you can tell if it is lose

or try greasing the steering shaft it self... sometimes that will get dry and make some noise... worth a try.

Mine has been doing a similar thing for a while now. When I go from left to right and right from left I hear/feel a click/clunk.

I jacked the truck up to inspect everything and my passenger side upper ball joint has significant play, so I am assuming that is it.

I've just been waiting for Carli to come out with their new lower BJs so I can do all4 at once.

Well after playing with it a bit more, it only does it when i go from right to left and the wheels are pointed to the left. there is a small thunk after they go past straight, then a large THUNK when i turn the wheel all the way. I think im going to take it in today.....

took it to the shop and they aligned it and that seemed to fix it, temporarily. My tow was off by about an INCH!

I'm still at a loss, i have no idea what is causing this and it worries me. i is a large clanking sound/feel in my front end only when the wheels are cranked to the left, especially when turning all the way. Anyone else had experience with this??
