Mine did the same, it ended up being the rubber spring insulators had a small hole in them (thin bits of rubber that sit on top of the springs). Took a while to find as the hole was tiny.

Try turning them a bit so they sit in a different position, you will need to just about remove the spring to do this.

Cheap and easy try first.

if it does it when you turn, have a quik look at the rubber piece that is in the steering knuckle just before the steer box. I tried to track a clunk in mine (1 of many) and found that. I could feel a small jolt in the steering wheel as well. only seen 1 other truck do this.
