Front end clunk

Hey guys I have been noticing only sometimes when I go to make a left hand turn there seems to be a clunk or a banging sound in the front end. I can sometimes feel the clunk in the floor board. Could this be a ball joint or tie rod issue?

Thanks for any info!

Ball joints more than likely

A rough country lift and 35's will wear them out fast. Just part of having a lifted truck that's heavy.

Does it do it all the time or only from a dead stop? Only going left? Jack up the front end and see if there's any play in the wheel.

Check the U joints in the front and also the hubs and the wheel bearing.

Usually at slow speeds while making a turn and from a dead stop.
