Welcome. A bit more info might be helpful like 2wd or 4wd, turning left or right or both and what speeds this happens at.

Check your axle u-joints and ball joints for play.

Finally, I found this thread again. Good start, follow this up with tie-rods and other steering linkage parts, stabilizer, radius arm, and pivot point bushings. Same with shock absorbers and springs and their related fasteners. Does it seem the same in 2wd as 4wd? I'm not as familiar with 2005 trucks as others would be, not even sure if they still use the twin I-beam type design, but the premise is sound. Wherever you have a rubber bushing, it will ultimately wear out.

I had what sounds like the same issue and chased it for weeks thinking it was something obvious.

Turned out to be a factory (non greasable) lower ball joint and it drove me nuts. The appeared fine, but were dried out under the boot. I replaced both side and havent' had the noise again.

I have a clunk noise issue with the front end in my truck. I know exactly what it is, the spring on the pass. side doesn't quite sit right on the axle seat. Every so often it pops and the sound reverberates through the frame making it sound worse than it really is. All I need to do is replace a washer but I haven't got to it yet.
