clunking intermitantly when turning

HI again everyone, seem to be finding more and more things that need sorted on my firts cally,

im getting a clunking noise from the front left of the car when turning left, this does not happen every time i turn

i also get a vibration through the steering at 55+ mph which i put down to wheel ballance ( also getting vibration from rear wheels )

i am going to get the wheels ballanced today and see how things play out, any thoughts on the clunking noise?

:think:

If it was regular clunking, odds on it is CV joint. When turning left it is the o/s, when turning right the n/s.

So that's one off the list :D

It could also be a broken spring, the best thing to do is to strip the strutt and inspect and renew worn parts :D
