The last time I had the clunk disappear, was when I did a fresh strut/bearing/mount install. It returned in 1500 miles.

If I can surpass 1500 miles this time with no clunk, I'd hope we're good.

One last avenue I haven't tried yet, since Lipshurt seems to be having success with shimming the strut tower with a plastic card, is bonding the strut ends of the strut tower brace to the towers with silicone, or spraying the ends with Plastidip.
