2013 Wrangler front susp "clunk"?

Hi all, just got back from the dealer for a second time in two weeks, got an odd clunk when turning, traction light comes on, (sometimes for 2-3 miles!), and the trackbar bolt at the frame looks like it has moved! My 4 dr Wrangler only has 14,000 on it, dealer says it's "normal"??

Anyone else have this problem?

Sounds like the track bar is loose. Is your steering wheel off center....the stability control light will come on of the steering wheel is
off center while driving.

^^^ This is important information. However, regardless of whether your Jeep is modified or not, it is not normal for the TB bolt to shift. If it is a TB you should address ASAP or other joints will damaged.

+1 OP consider trying a different dealership if you can't DIY.
