steering trouble!

My jeep won't fully steer left or right and when I do try to steer it, it will make a loud clunking sound from the driver side to get it to steer fully. Every time I turn it to the right the steering wheel tries to force itself left. A little help please. Thanks

Assuming you don't have it in 4 wheel drive, the first thing I would check is the axle u-joints, followed by clearance issues with your drag link/tie rod. Is your power steering pump making any noises or is it all coming from the steering knuckle?

Sounds like you should jack that side up and see what's loose....
