Front Suspension Refresh

The front suspension in my '84 3.2 clunks when A) driving in reverse and B) full-lock turning at slow speed. (Parking lot)

I'd like to do a refresh but am unsure exactly where to start. When driving...speed doesn't matter...the car tracks flawlessly and the steering is fantastic. It's just the slow-speed stuff that causes the clunks.

Many thanks for any advice.

Start by checking for free play. Ball joints, tie rod ends, tie rods at the steering rack, A arm bushings, strut tops, sway bar, crossmember, torsion bar adjusters.
