So, a structural deficiency is likely not the issue. We'll find out when I install the updated strut brace next week.
the clunk was from going over bumps or breaks in pavement not turning wheels ,you could duplicate the sound by turning wheel sharply back and forth.It wasn't a structural deficiency just two pieces of wheel well suspension pieces that weren't properly fastened when you hit a bump would clunk.Mechanics and myself thought it was strut issue also replaced everything on strut assembly, noise went away for awhile then came back in a couple thousand miles.After replacing everything twice found the tsb and didn't have noise anymore.
