I have the same clunking. I have an 05 excursion with a 4" lift and 35" tires. I first replaced the shocks with Bilstein, thinking it was the shocks. Nope. Then I replaced the balljoints with cheapie ones. Still had the clunk so I replaced them with Moog balljoints and wheen bearings while I was at it. Still has the clunk. Not sure where to go next.

Any suggestions????

Can you only feel it when turning or can you feel it on rough roads also? I would check your sway bar end link bushings. I had a clunking like this also that I could hear and feel in my feet when I was when I was on rough roads and I replaced the sway bar end link bushings with some polyeurethane ones from energy suspension and no more clunking. Here are 2 pics of the end links. Try grabbing them and rocking them back and fourth. If you are able to move them back and fourth then you need to replace them.

You can even remove the swaybar from the axle and find a way to tie it up and off of the axle to eliminate it.
