I don't see the video, but yes, bad ball joints.

Upper or lower


Well I don't know unless I had a look at it. All joints, steering and ball joints need to have no play whats so ever. If you have a video send it to you tube and let me know where to find it, link. If need be...

Ok uploaded the video to YouTube.just type 1994 Dogde RAM van b250 clunking noise,it should come up... Thanks again for your help

Took It​to Auto zone,they said maybe upper control arm bushing or upper ball joint


The video is not coming up, not finding it, but yes also could be a upper or lower control arm bushings that are bad. That also would make the wheel have slop.

It was the upper a arm link,the long bolt looking thing, bolts were loose


That would do it.
