FRONT STRUT ACTION WHILE TURNING

1993 Oldsmobile Ciera

Noises problem
1993 Oldsmobile Ciera 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 68700 miles

Inherited car from my aunt. It sat idle for 4 yrs. I got it with 9K. Still like new. Front end is all replaced and is recent new or inspects OK including: ball joints, tie rods (in& out), struts, and strut mounts. This car flys on the open road with no shakes or virbations at 80 mph or better. However, in town driving reveals front end clunk while turning, but only with strut action. Struts are Gabriel replacements for this vehicle as are the mounts, both good at inspection and operation, 9 mos. Old. Alignment just last week.
What can this clunk be?
