Clunky Steering

I have an 06 with a 4" skyjacker suspension lift. I have recently noticed a clunking sound/feel when turning left and right. It only does this when the steering wheel is turned about and eight of a turn. I have noticed a slight increase in death wobble. Im a little concerned that something is going to let go and send me careening into a ditch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check for a blown bushing at the axle end of the track bar.

Lay under/in front of your Jeep while someone cranks the steering wheel back and forth. Look and listen for anything that may be loose or worn.
