loud clunk noise when turning steering wheel
 
Doesnt really happen when im driving but when im attempting to park turning left i get a loud clunk. Wondering where this is coming from... the tie rods? or the suspension i cant really tell but it doesnt sound good... any input?

Whenever I'd turn the wheel left, there was a consistent clunking noise- both in reverse and drive. The click clunk noise disappeared when driving straight. BUT... The engine also began to run VERY rough, almost like it was driving in 2 or 1. The clicking stopped when the entire joint gave way this evening. Thank God for a Jeep guru friend who found it. I would have kept driving the dang thing!
