Help some noise after 2" level kit in front end

I had a 2" Newton level kit put on my 05 F250 CCSB w/ the track bar spacer. The truck tracks straight but the wheel was off to the right so I had an alignment done. It's all straight now. My problem is when I first get the truck started or start driving when I start to turn the wheel to the right I hear a clunk sound, and it's only when I turn the wheel to the right. And only when moving forward. I didn't replace the shocks and I also noticed the the steering stabilizer bushing was looking worst for ware. When I had the alignment done I was told the ball joints looked good, and I'm trying to figured out what else it could be. I know my truck made no noise before the level kit. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks

was it a spacer kit? if so, are the spacers on top of the coil or on the bottom under the coil plate? the uppers rarley move, but if they used the lower spacers, they are bolted in, the bolts can come loose or they may not be tight enough. this looseness can cause the lower coil plate to wiggle in its spot. weird though its only to the right. also check track bar, i think it need to be tightned to 400 ft lbs at the upper bracket.

Thanks, it is the type that the spacers are bolted in at the bottom. So I'm guessing that may be it due to I'm sure the track bar is tight. I appreciate the response the noise is getting on my nerves. I'll have to re-tighten those bolts and see if that's it.

i agree with that, sounds like it would be the culprit, but just for ****s and giggles check your axle shaft u-joint. not sure if it clunks all the time or randomly but if its constant while moving and/or turning it may be that as well. done many on my vehicles.
