Well, that TSB is specifically for the strut bearings exhibiting a grinding/crunching/creaking/groaning noise, not the clunking that many of us have been dealing with.

FWIW, my clunking strut bearings did make creaking noises when turning from lock to lock. In fact, that noise is still slightly present after my fix. It doesn't really bother me, though.
