Have had that happened on a 4x4 before, but not a fwd car. you can only feel it at low speeds and not high? are you on the gas or just coasting out?

Inspect the strut tower and coil. Can you feel 'it' in the steering wheel or just hear it?

I just had this same EXACT problem recently, and it was my driver'* side stabilizer bar endlink (a long bolt with several rubber bushings, between the bar and frame) busted in half. I had feared a failed strut, but it ended up being much simpler and cheaper. $5.99 at Auto Zone and I fixed it myself in about an hour! See this thread:

I'll go with the endlinks, too.

I have that exact same problem, just noticed if a few days ago...
It feels like you kind ran over something.. but it only happens when the wheel is turned tightly and you're moving right?

Hrm... endlinks...

The endlink kits come with bushings.

We just had Kendra'* tie-rods tightened and a front end alignment done. Clunking noise at low speeds and vibration at high.
