Double check your bolts on the entire front suspension. My clunk happened to come from a loose bolt on my control arm. Do that before you dump any more money.

Check the inner tie rods. Jack the front of vehicle up and grasp tire at 3 and 9 o'clock positions and wiggle side to side. If the inner tie rods are worn you will hear a ticking sound. If that is the case it's best to replace both sides.

You could look for loosened motor mounts. That could give a clonking noise at various speeds and conditions.
Good luck,
Paul
