My Ride: 2002 325ci
Clunking Noise

Hi. I have a 2002 325ci. About 2 weeks ago I started hearing a clunking noise coming from my front driver side. When I start from rest I hear it sounds like something is going back into place. When I press my brakes I hear it. When I come to a complete stop I hear it. When I go over bumps I hear it. And when I turn my steering wheel it sounds like something's twisting to the point it's gona break. Any suggestions for what my problem is or what I should check for first ? All your help is greatly appreciated

This, sounds like they could be really really worn from what you are describing.
