Wow really sounds like where gonna have to come up with a fix on our own.

I don't really notice the sound so much when I'm alone in the car on my trip into work in the mornings but when I have a couple co-workers in the car headed to lunch its very noticeable when braking and even more noticeable when braking and turning.

I wonder if we disconnected the front sway bar for a test run if that might be it.

I can tap the brake pedal sometimes and it almost sounds like the same thunk that appears to be coming from the front end. Strange.

Has anyone considered the sound could be something coming from the rear of the car and the sound is being transmitted though the body/frame so it appears to be coming from up front?

Hey if the Strut has a design flaw or any of the parts Ford keeps throwing at this issue do. I don't' expect it would ever fix the problem.

Just a hunch but wouldn't the clunking be related to the front sway bar (sway bar itself, bushing or endlinks?)

'Tis my theory.

I have an uncooperative dealer, so I'm going to try to resolve it myself.
