Weird clunk

Have an 01 F250 with 8 in lift and 38s. Has had all this since 03 when i bought it with 25000 miles, now have 106000 and have had zero issues minus the normal wear and tear stuff like ball joints and a hub assembly. Have recently started hearing a clunk when turning left, only happens when turning left. Started troubleshooting it today. Everything is tight as far as tie rods and steering goes. However there are 2 lines on the left side of the radiator that appear to be power steering lines going to a radiator i believe that noticeably move, like a valve is sticking in the power steering pump causing the lines to jump so to speak and i hear the clunk at the same time. I'm assuming it's just the power steering pump on its way out the door. Has anyone experienced this before?

You might check your sway bar/end link bushings. Mine makes a clunk noise when I hit a bump while turning and that's what's wrong with mine. Just an option...
