    I have a 2004 ram 1500 4x4, it has 255,000 original miles and I recently started noticing a clank when I turn
    (side of clank depending on turn direction) does anyone have a idea what it is? I don't have a cc joint on one side so I know it isn't that. I was thinking tie rod but I would love to hear other peoples opinions.

    Sounds a Wheel bearing. Get it off the ground and try to move the wheel hand at 9 & 3 o’clock, 12 & 6 o’clock. Check for play in ball joints as well.
    Hope that helps.
