There are 6 lube points on the drive shafts and u-Joints, check to see these are fully lubed. The drive line will "Klunk" when dry.

While it is possible the struts or the upper strut mounts are causing the noise, the far more common, and much cheaper problem, is the sway bar links.
To check them properly a drive on hoist is best as it keeps the sway links at the cars normal ride height.
If you lift the car any other way it puts the links into a different position and may be harder to verify the wear.
The links are like small tie rod ends (a ball inside a socket) and when they wear they become loose and cause an awful racket on bumps.
Also where the sway bar is attached to the body there are rubber bushings that wear and allow the bar to wiggle inside and clunk there too, especially in cooler weather when the rubber gets hard.
Sway bar and bushing noise will be evident on the smallest of bumps whereas the strut mounts will need a little more of a bump to create the noise.
If the upper mounts are the problem your struts at 75k will likely be OK, but to change the mounts they have to come out anyway. So you may need to make a decision at that point if mounts needed.
There are a couple of possible common problems for you.
If you need more help with this problem, please ask me.
Thank you for using FixYa.
