Default hard time diagnosing

the car is making a clunking noise whenever the steering wheel is turned to a greater degree than a usual turn. it seems it is on both side of the front end. steering is loose. the best front-end guy in town couldn't find. since we are quite far from a dealer we started there. the car is a 2005 ion 49K miles. my wife hit a deep pothole a few months ago and I have a feeling this is the after effect.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

My guess is the steering gear is worn.

Endlinks go bad on these regularly. Also hard to see right off. Have them looked at.
