    sharp turns..mostly notice it making sharp left turns..i hear this clunky sound...then it will go away when i striaghten out but still does it a little when im driving. tomorrow im checking all the wheels bearings..and thing else i should look for? i know i need tie rods ends too..and the front D-shaft slip yoke is really loose..but other than that i dont know of anything wrong... the u-joints looked and felt good.

    Is it worse if you take turns faster, or no change?

    Doubt it's your problem, but I had a gov-lock that was broken in my last truck, and sharp corners, taken "fast", sounded and felt like I was running over the curb. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Eaiest thing to do is put it up in the air a bit, so you can move the axles, driveshafts and what not.

    I've had a similar thing last few days. couple hangers on my exhaust broke and it worked loose at the manifold so now I have an exhaust leak and it clunks around a little. Got to love walking past the K5 yesterday and seeing one tailpipe about 1 1/2 foot off the ground and the other right up at the bumper.
