    When I go around a corner at more than 10mph I hear a clunk from under the steering wheel. Just wondered if anyone knew what this was? sort of like a ball was under the car when it turns left it hits but stays there and doesn't make another noise until it turns right.

    Is it a clunk made by the steering column? Or is the clunk at the wheels and being carried by the steering column do you think?

    i think it's probably at the wheels being carried by the steering column. won't be able to tell until next week sometime when i can drive it again.

    ball joint sounds expensive. Anyone know of prices if it is this that has gone. I do know a few family mechanics would it be job for them? or garage only
