Default Clunking noise/ possible suspension noises??

Not too sure what the noise is here Iíve looked around here and there seems to be a lot of different culprits just looking for any insight! Much appreciated!

I do not get sound when playing that video.

Even if I could, I would need to know where on the car the noise is coming from. Front, rear, center, left or right? This matters.

How would I post a video with sound for you to hear and sounds around the wheels generally mainly the front

Around the wheels? Left or right side? Describe the sound in words. Try to be very specific and detailed. Is it constant when in motion, or does it happen only when going over a bump, pothole or such? Does it change in pitch with car speed? Is it a sharp instant bump, or a longer grind? It is high pitched? Any descriptive terms would help.

I don’t know how you can post a sound clip.

You should be able to directly post most common audio and video files like mp3, mp4, avi, wav and wmv files.

Clunking. Look at the sway bar end links - inexpensive and easy to replace. Also check the sway bar bushings, also inexpensive but a bit harder to get to.

Is the car jumping up and down too on level ground?

I still have no idea where you are hearing the sound coming from. That is really important to know. Left, right, front or back.

The rear sway bar end links tend to loosen over time. Simply tightening them with Blue Loctite or similar mild thread locker might solve the problem if the sound is from the back.

The front end links are easy to get to and easy to replace.

These are common suspension issues as the cars get miles on them.

More difficult would be the top hats/strut bearings on the front struts. Again, these are pretty cheap, but there is quite a bit of work involved. It could also be the blown struts in front or shocks in back, or even a broken spring, all in the differential analysis.
