If there's no snow on the road or you aren't off roading there is no need for 4wd, making sharp turns can damage your car

You shouldn't be using 4WD on hard surfaces like pavement. The clunking you're hearing are the U-joints or CV joints and the front drivetrain binding up. This happens when the surface you're driving on has too much traction, A part time 4WD system doesn't have a center diff the front drivetrain and the rear have to turn at the same speed. when the vehicle turns the inside wheels have less distance to travel than the outside wheels, this means that unless there's some slip or give in the terrain you're driving on, the front drivetrain will bind up, this is not desirable because that binding can result in broken parts. When on snow, ice, sand, or mud there's plenty of slip in the terrain so you don't experience this, on hard dry ground or pavement, there isn't any give, and you get driveline binding. If you experience driveline binding, that means you shouldn't be in 4WD.
