If the clunk is in the transmission then it may be time to replace in that there is a history of some problems with the electronic transmission. Check the mileage and maintenance history. If it sounds like it is in the front suspension as your inquiry implies, it may simply be that the sway bar bushing and links are dry and/or in need of replacement. You might also check out TSB 23-01-97A (Front end noise upon deceleration) and/or 19-14-97 (Tie rod - popping in front end). Good luck!

What could it mean when there is a clunk in the rear end when turning right or left?

the clunk you,re hearing when turning could be either the stabilizer bar is loose or it,s bushings are worn. Also if your vehicle is equipped with rear struts (instead of coil or leaf springs) they could be worn or out of allignment. Rear struts must be alligned from time to time just like the front end on vehicles so equiped.Hope this helps and good luck,mannsvillain
