You could check the lower control arm bushings for wear. Also check the struts for any movement. Just a couple thoughts.

Wow, we have the exact same problem, and had them replaced, and found out they werne't the problem because now it doesn't clunk, it makes more of a snap now...
Oh and the rear drums stick when the car is stopped on a hill (at a light or something) and you go to pull away. They also make a clunk when they let go

No one can find out what the noise is from the front end though, it'* been to 4 different garages and no one can figure it out, it'* really starting to be a pain
