Default Would worn upper shock "jounce bumper" / bushing cause clunking when turning the wheel? (more)

I've been posting about my clunking suspension for some time now. It started right after I got new springs & shocks installed, and it happens only when I turn from lock to lock at rest.

I've noticed that this clunking goes away when the suspension is wet.

Does this suggest that the dampness is causing the springs not to rub against the upper shock bushing / "jounce bumper" in the same way as when they are dry, and might this suggest that if I replaced the bushing this sound might go away?

I think Induktion said they were going to order new bushings for me and give that a try.

Default could be tie rods or tie rod ends...

or upper controls arms.

best thing is to take the front suspension out, retighten everthing, and make sure you have some load on the corner when tightening the lower shock bolt. Put the jack under that corner and jack it up until it slightly raises off the jack stand, then torque it.

check sway bar uplink also.
