I expect the "clunking" isn't coming from the steering column but is a "transfered" noise from a worn steering component. The idler arm is a prime candidate for a clunk. Take it to a mechanic you trust and have the front end checked like tie rod ends, ball joints and shocks. I think that will ilolate your clunk. Don't wait too long, you don't want to loose steering control--It could ruin your whole day.
