Occasional clunk when turning???

So we've been commuting back and forth to the office in the TDI Beetle and it's been great for mileage (45mpg, consistently). Now, the other day, I have a noticeable clunk when I turn (either way). It doesn't do it when going over RR tracks or up into the driveway, just occasionally when I turn. It felt/sounded like a loose trac bar, but everything seems really tight with the front suspension on the ground. I am thinking it might need to go up on a rack to diagnose it, unless someone might have a suggestion for what it might be. It's an 05, so coil spring front suspension with an Icon 2.5" leveling springs, Bilstein 5100 shocks and BDS dual steering stabilizer with Bilstein 5100 stabilizer shocks. Like I said, everything "feels" tight, but it's with the truck on the ground. Any suggestions?

Not exactly what I had in mind. Let me try again...

Any suggestions for what it might be or something I can check?

I don't have jackstands tall enough to lift the front end to check for loose steering components with the wheels off the ground.

if you dont have the tools, take it to an alignment shop for a shake down.

Hard to diagnose a "clunk"

Check the front bearings? Wheels are tight? Caliper brackets are tight?

Have you checked the track bar bushing/bolt and nut? Mine made a clunk like that and found that the bolt and nut for the bushing was not tight enough? or you could have a worn out bushing?

If it's a clunk on your 250, do you feel the clunk in the front floor board? Had one the other day come in and it was loose front body mounts. Always something to check

Thanks for the feedback, guys! I do feel it in the front floor board, so I'm guessing I should check the front body mounts. Do you know how to check them?

BTW, my truck was just in the shop about 3-4 months ago where my trac bar ball joint and bushing were replaced. Additionally, my ball joints were checked and found to be tight and in great shape. I would expect that my bearings were checked at the same time. Could they go out that quick?

I haven't checked my calipers or my wheels, but that should be easy to check.

Keep the suggestions coming!

Maybe a silly question but have you used 4wd lately? I had a clunk when turning sharp into my parking garage and it need up being the lockout not fully disengaged. I switch the esof switch back and forth a few times and now no more clunk.
