Cool clunk/pop noise in front suspension

In the past few weeks I have replaced the sway bar end link kits, the passenger side motor mount(had to change the idler pulley, found a bad mount) the lower torque mount and the trans. mount. Yesterday I started driving my 50 mile commute, when I started hearing this clunking noise anytime the car would hit a bump, or an uneven road surface in the highway. Took the car straight to the shop, and we first determined that it was the LH strut and strut mount. Purchased one new Monroe Sensa Trac strut and strut mount, and it seemed that it had taken care of the problem. This morning the noise returned after going over some bumps on the way to work. It happens at low speeds and at highway speeds some times. Anybody has an idea what else could be wrong? Thanks in advance!!!
