    Turning the wheels while the truck isn't moving is one of my pet peeves. This post is driving me nuts!!!!!!!!

    That's a good possibility on these. 16 and 17s were know for bad body mount bushings.

    Pretty sure one collective brain cell fuels Toyota dealers.

    Update

    Got it checked with the shop I deal with
    No play in rack etc everything is tight. As I turned he felt all different points trying to find it. He found you feel it most in the uca

    Basically it's the uniball.
    Thinks it might be because if the amount of dirt etc that's being held by the fluid film so he said try washing it.
    No play in the uniball yet so its just starting.

    Guess total chaos UCA aren't a fan of Canadian winters lol
    It's just the uniball is loading with pressure and the clunk is it letting go and moving finally

    If it gets worse just replace uniball

    I took mine in for the clunk in the front end. I took the service advisor out and pulled out of a few parking spaces so he could hear it after the tech could not hear the clunk. He took my truck in and put it on the lift and checked to see if everything was tight in the front end and it was so he said. Service advisor popped the hood and left it up and 2 techs walked beside the truck but could not figure out where the clunk was coming from. 2 hours later the service advisor tells me he knows it is not right for a new truck to have a front end clunk but they could not track it down. Told me it was documented and to drive it and if it got worse to bring it back. My truck didn't have 500 miles on it yet when I took it in. Think it had 460 miles on it if I remember correctly.

    Thought maybe this spring I would take it to other Toyota service departments within a 100 mile radius and see by chance if one of the techs have dealt with the front end clunk before.
