front end CLUNK

i have a front end clunk coming from my passenger side. its done it since ive had it.

ive replaced

shocks/springs with strut tops
control arms
ball joints
end links
tie rod ends

so its not suspension related at this point

Ataru thinks its my passenger motor mount. Not saying it isnt, at just under 100k it very well could be

Anyone have any ideas?


Also, would going VF Mounts be better than Stock? For the extra $$ is it worth it? I daily the car, as well as some Auto-X here and there.
