2000 SE Front End Clunk

Guys I have this front end clunk that is driving me nuts. When I put the car in gear and accelerate it seems to clunk on both sides. Some times when I hit a bump. I have had the front end up on stands and everything appears tight. I have also had the front end up while supported under the control arms and I can't get any movement or noise when trying to force the tires about. This is what has been replaced in the past couple of months.

1) Control arms
2) Front struts
3) Sway bar links
4) Right side and rear engine mounts
5) Transmission mount
6) Outer tie rod ends
7) Drive axles on both sides

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Could there be a motor mount issue? Or, maybe some other bushing in the drivetrain?

Just guessing (and bumping).

Considering all the major culprits are on that list, I'm guessing something was not installed correctly. I would double check and check again that everything is tightened down correctly. I have a similar clunk on moderate acceleration on my FoFo which oddly only has 8000 miles on it...
