Why does my Chevy truck clunk when I turn?

Mine in the 2010 is different and there is a huge cv looking boot and u-joints on it that were clunking on me. I replaced and it went away. I would presume you got the “updated” version if you replaced your intermediate shaft so would not suspect it to be bad. It could be that something is shifting in the suspension and making the clunk.

Why does my steering wheel make clunking noises?

The struts are designed to turn with the wheels as the struts have a mounting surface for the wheel hub. While checking the struts for sounds, feel the steering wheel for any movement as if the mounting bolts to the wheel hubs could be loose making the wheels move in and out of alignment. Step 4: Drive the vehicle over bumps or potholes.
