I do have the old ones, but part of the reason for putting on new ones was that the threads on 1 side of the driver side was cross threaded at some point and I wanted new ones to replace that and figured I might as well get some nice adjustable ones.

As far as the rod ends I wouldn't think that having them spherical would be causing the clunk, i understand that they may transfer more noise but i dont think that part would cause the noise just transfer it better. it's almost more of a pop than a clunk after focusing on it for the past couple days, to me it sounds like it's coming from the left side and sounds kind of higher like at the shock mount. I looked at them today and I don't see any signs that either is damaged, I'm probably going to take it apart a bit tomorrow and see if I can't notice anything and make sure the sway bar is center.
