Endlinks are good and tight.
What about...would this noise come from possible front caliper noise, like if they are loose??? I'm Just guessing.
Or what about if there is a stiky caliper piston or slides?
Would that be why when I hit the brakes to slow down to a stop or yield I here this noise from about 10-30 mph? It clunks only once or maybe twice until I stop or go from yield.-toddster

Brakes are super tight when being applied. Remember..the force of that squeezing stops you.

That makes sense and all, but what I'm wondering is what if they hesitate for a split second and then squeeze, would that make the clunk noise?-toddster

Todd...you can check the two bolts on that hold the caliper to frame, honestly I doubt it. And I've never heard a clanking from brakes.

You know what! If you have the plastic shield up front..pull it and remove the tools you are missing from your car. That'll probably get rid of it. (I hope..cause I'm running out of ideas here)
