Clunking noise when turning right

Hello everyone, I have a puzzling problem, just started to notice that when I make a slight turn at about 30-40mph I get a clunking noise, almost like something is slapping against the rear passenger tire well. Also happens when I make a slow sweeping turn in say a parking lot, but no noise at highway speed. I've searched around and havent found to much info on what could cause this. I have 2005 WK Laredo, QD1, have 104,000 miles.(Vehicle is stock, and all orginal shocks/struts) i did a visual inspection and i cant see anything that would be loose/hanging to make the noise, any ideas?

Re: Clunking noise when turning right

take your brake rotor off and look at the emergency brake. the pad may have come disconnected from the metal plate and is clunking around in there. happened to me on the exact same wheel!

Check your swaybar bushings and swaybar endlinks. My stock endlinks were shot at 50k.

My sway bar squeaks on the right side.

Re: Clunking noise when turning right

depending on the clunk noise, it is either the sway bushing or the parking brake pad
