Hey, hey, whats that sound? (Suspension noise + Video)

Got a noise in the left front of my 03 SVT. Creeks over bumps and turning. It does not make noise when the suspension is unloadad. the Outer tie rod has been replaced so I greased it and it resulted in no change. I can't tell if its coming from the Ball Joint, end link or the strut.

I'm hoping this will sound familiar to someone.

Click image below for video.

I've been having the same problems. Kind of like nails on a chalk board sound. If you know what the problem is please let me know.

Sounds like the strut to me. Usually ball joints or the links will clunk when they go bad.
