    Clunking is probably worn bushings or worn balljoints/trackrods. It should be noticed quite easily when the struts come apart, but a simple test is to jack a wheel off the ground and give it a good wiggle. If it clonks and has play, then you've got worn parts.

    Of course, i can't remember having the same problem with the rear end... that could be a dying beam, or bushings again. To check the beam, try to measure the camber of the rear wheels. If they're unequal, or if they're both heavily cambered, then the rear beam will need a rebuild/replacement. It's probably not that though...
