Hey guys, my car recently started making a clunking sound when turning the wheel to the right. I found the source of the problem (see video and picture below) but I have no idea what the part actually is so I'm curious to see if anyone here knows. Thanks!

Looks like a bolt is supposed to go there, or was there. Cant tell for what from that angle; lower end link mount?

I don't have that kind of sound but I have where it sounds like its 2 pieces of metal panel slapping against each other when I turn full lock left/right

Could it be the nut for one of the suspension control arms are missing?

I think you're locked in; looks like the bolt sheared.
