on a few cars of mine that had this issue, replacing the sway bar end links eliminated the clanking knocking over small bumps. it typically sounds as if the strut mount itself is loose and that's always what i check first, but on both cars it ended up being the end links.
^^ bingo...it's the endlinks. Replace them and you will be fine. I replaced mine after raising my Sonata back to stock height after being lowered.
It's a known fact in the Hyundai community that their endlinks wear VERY fast. If you have ever taken one apart, you will see why. The ball joint inside the rubber cover is not made very well.
Also, the endlinks are not bushings...its a rod connected to a ball joint on both ends that attaches to the strut and sway bar. It's the ball joint that fails. You can replace the sway bar bushings, but that really isn't the cause of your issue.
