clunk when turning and braking

2 different problems. One is sometimes when I'm going slow and I hit my brakes I feel and hear a clunk it feels like it is right under my feet but can't figure out what it is and the second is when I turn either way I get a clunk from the steering. I have checked every bushing ball joint everything and can't find the problem. Could it be the steering gear box? Its not hard to turn my wheels at all

I'd check the trac bar for proper torque. Suppose to be at 400 ft lbs I think. It can appear tight but cause a clunk.
