Have all the rubber bushings looked at from shock/strut mounts to the sway bars. A good candidate also would be the ball joints. As stated from another member...get a repair manual or let a professional look at it and give u an estimate for repairs. Froom that you can do the repair youself if you want since you will have a list of needed parts to replace.

Front end clunking noise going over small bumps

It could be a couple of things.
Loose or worn out strut - (jack up car, remove tire and shake the strut really hard to see if it's loose. Check for signs of leaking or damage to strut)
Missing rubber isolator under front spring (visually inspect the suspension while tire is off).
Broken sway bar mount or missing rubber in the mount on the frame. (Lay under the front and look for where the sway bar mounts to the frame. Make sure everything is tight and the rubber is still in it.

Hello emaci.
There are several items that can create a clunk.
Struts and mounts, broken coil springs, ball joints, tie rod ends, sway bar links and bushings and control arm bushings.
The most common problem I see in my shop on these cars are sway links and control arm bushings.
I would suggest you take it to a competent front end shop and get it checked over.
I hope this helps you.
Take care........KL

Its Probably your strut/ strut mounts... very common problem, Also check your shocks for faliure, strut rod bushings,sway bar link / connectors/bushings. Worst case check cv joints
