front end noise

I have a 92 4.o liter. I notice when im going slow. I. E. starting or stopping i get some noise. Clunking maybe for lack of a better term. Not all the time does anybody have any suggestions for where to start trouble shooting. Its the passenger side. Im thinking its something hub related. U- joint. Wheel bearing. Im pretty sure I need a new steering stabilizer. But I know that has nothing to do with it. Any ideas where to start looking? Thanks. this is were I wish I had more general automotive knowledge.

I'd start off by putting a wrench on all your suspension, steering, etc bolts to make sure nothing is loose. Grab things and give them a shake to make sure nothing seems loose. Check for any worn out bushings, etc. If nothing seems out of sorts, I'd then get a buddy to move the steering wheel back and forth and even drive forward and backward and look at your U-Joints, etc. You can also jack up the front tire and give them a shake to see if there's any play in your *damn the word is on the tip of my tongue! That should atleast narrow things down quite a bit if you don't find it.
