Steering wheel pop when turning left.

Guys, any ideas on what would cause the steering wheel itself to make a clunk pop just once, when turning left. It seems like the steering wheel is loose or something. I can't get it to do it turning right and the steering wheel doesn't have any play when you push it fowards and then pull on it. I can't seem to figure it out but it drives me crazy..

Check to see if your track bar is loose. Also check the track bar ball joint.

im not sure what the track bar is? Am i checking to see if it is loose? I know what a ball joint looks like. I am guessing it is a bar linked to the steering.

thanks guys,

Have someone move the streering wheel back and forth while you are looking at the track bar. You will be able to see if its loose or if there is play.

great, thanks, so i am guessing the ball joint is what goes out on them? Do you know the torque spec on the bolt? "ZMANN".

Since the only two grease fittings on the truck are at the u joints on the front axle, ther is no real way to prevent this from happening right? It is just a normal wear item.

Thanks again the picture really helps,
