has any one looked at how the strut tower and reinforcements are connected together?had an '04 dodge stratus(problem on stratus from 2001-2005) that clunked going over bumps,manhole covers etc. replaced everything on front end(struts and springs did twice) even made an 1/8 inch rubber spacer where mount connected to strut tower ,noise would go away then return .After 2 years messing with it a new mechanic(ex-chrysler became heavy truck mechanic) at work told me about a tsb for an intermittent clunk(tried it on mine had a consistant clunk) it involved installing 2 rivots one on bottom backside of strut tower one below that. the rivots didn't appear to be structurally important,but it stopped the clunking heres a link to tsb even though it doesn't apply different type suspension mounting just an idea
