Ok, it has been progressing and getting worse and worse and worse. Originally it was just when turning and had the wheel turned all the way. Now its like 4 clunks in the full turn of the wheel. Doesnt matter if im going forward or backwards, anytime i even slightly turn the wheel it clunkes and you can feel it jerk the whole steering column. Im afraid the thing is going to break completely and im going to lose all steering control while driving down the road. Any idea what is wrong with it guys? Thanks.

check strut mounts like he stated. and does the sound go away over time as the car warms up or stay with you?

Well I did some more diggin on the site and found several others that have/had the same problem and most of them seems to point out the same problem... now if i could just remember what that part was called they replaced... stearing gear or something...? lol

The sound stays with me anytime im turning...
