Fords generally have a noisier steering. You can try adding some lucas power steering fluid conditioner, but you may be chasing down a ghost. IS the fluid a clean pink color as it should be?
The clunk needs to be looked at. Jack up the front end and shake the wheel at various postions using a push pull rocking action and feel for play. Gut feel is a ball joint.
