put the car in the air and shake down the front end for looseness, there may be a loose TRE or bearing causing the thumping, also these cars genrally tend to eat up sway bar links so check it too

I'd be careful
apparently that'* the (generally) dealer-installed stuff that'* like that. A local place here (Krown) is generally accepted to be good (not the cheapest, but good), and their stuff is oil-thin.
