I realise... but I still couldn't resist.
I agree with Janithn, and it could also be steering rack mount bushings, inner tie rod bushings, and also the 'rag' joint in the steering shaft at the firewall. When cold, some times my car (as well as other discussed on the board) have had a clunking sound. Probably NOT what you are experiencing though.
Just like in all trouble shooting guides ("Problem - Machine won't power up: Solution - Is the power cord plugged in?"), could it be something that shifted in the glove box, and from the drivers seat it sounds like it is in the stack? Doubtfull since it has gone on for several thousand miles now, but worth a check.
Otherwise, I suspect it is a dash or component mount someplace behind the dash... A bolt that worked loose and is getting looser, if it isnt in the suspension.
