Steering only Clunks to the Right
Finally picked up my 2000 Bonneville yesterday and have driven it 50 miles or so. Gave me a chance to get a better feel for the steering clunk which up to this point I have assumed to be the notorious intermediate shaft problem. However, the clunk is only present when turning the steering wheel to the right. It used to make the noise when turning left but has since disappeared within the 50 miles. No noise whatsoever when turning left now.
The car has been sitting for about 1-1/2 years and only driven periodically (<14,000 miles on odometer). I'm wondering if it just needs to have the kinks worked out of it (so to speak) to loosen things up.
I've read a few posts about a possible u-joint/steering knuckle problem instead of the intermediate shaft and could use come opinions before I start my own diagnosis this weekend.
