I had the same problem, would clunk only whilst turning under brakes. Wheel bearings had to be adjusted as they had to much end float.

just diagnosed that noise last week with my mechanic its the wheel bearings, if u jack the car up and pull the wheel off you will be able to notice the free play in the rotor...
