Default Clunk sound from front suspension

Recently changed both L&R Lower Control Arms, but I'm hearing a clunk sound. Any ideas what may be causing this?

Question Re: Cluck sound from front suspension

Have you checked the front sway bar bushings & mounts,and maybe the end links?

I did replace the sway bar bushings, but did not replace the mounts because they appear to be okay. I hit your link which showed the fellow with the Lincoln described a similar sound and when he removed the mounts it revealed how much these were deteriorated, covered by the bracket. Perhaps that's exactly what I have.

I also followed the thread and watched both videos. Never know what I can learn from these.

Thank you very much for your help!!!
