Default balljoint-like clunk, with a new balljoint. help please

hey all, the title pretty much explains the noise i am experiencing. its coming from the passenger side, and the car has new struts new tie rod ends new brakes 11 month old wheelbearings and a new passenger control arm. alignment was just done today, but i have been experiencing the noise since before any of the new parts. it only seems to happen on right hand turns, when the weight is lifted off of that corner. sitting there with a jack, i can not reproduce the noise. any help is greatly appreciated. thanks alot!!

Sway bar/end links? did you check the control arm bushing on that side?

Is the cradle tight? It could be moving a little and causing it.
