Clunk at full lock

I was backing into the parking lot behind my house like I always do. When I started to reverse I cranked the wheel completely to the right and soon as I started moving it clunked real bad. Didn't seem to affect anything that I immediately noticed. Checked under and didnt see anything. My suspension setup currently sucks, OE shocks and struts on pro-kit springs. Money is tight so I haven't been able to replace. I'm planning new OE suspension cause it's so cheap here shortly but what would this clunk be?

Thanks

Nick

Could have been the differential complaining.

Did it clunk as you were letting out the clutch, or just when you turned the wheel???

Seemed to clunk when I cranked the wheel at full lock, I was already moving slightly. Never heard it before or after.

it wasnt the clunk that you hear when you hit the steering stop really hard is it? I do that all the time on accident, poor rack and pinion.

could be the steering rack mount bolts. if you've lowered your car it could have been the springs shifting.

Haven't heard it since?
