Default Does the front diff make a clunk too?

I noticed when I am turning real slow, barely any gas, I hear a clunking kinda sound from the front of the car...

that normal? I've read about the rear clunk from the rear diff, but this is definitely from the front...

Reason being is the front 'SureTrak' diff is a mechanical cam based unit.

Its normal noises and not something to be concerned about.
Just remember to set the DCCD to AUTO or the open mode when low speed turning (i.e. parking) or when in reverse.
