The outer tie rod ends can make a clanging noise if they are loose. You can easily check them - grab a hold of the tie rod and try to move it around to see if it has any play in the steering knuckle..
The noise could also be caused by the stabilizer/sway bar. Check the bushings and check the links for wear.

If the strut was broken the vehicle would be sitting oddly, it sounds like the spring in the strut assembly is moving around alot, so it may need the top strut nut tightened. The other area to check is it may have dry bush's in the bottom arm, give these a squirt of CRC 5.56 lubricant and see if that helps.
Finally check to see if there is any oil that has seeped from the shock absorber in the strut, it maybe running dry and this will cause a whooshing type squeak..which will be quite loud. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Betting on Shock or Struts they make noise when they wear out does ther vehicle also dive that direction on hard stop? its a metal piston plunging into a rubber gromet/washer/sealer so thats the sound your hearing NO Immediate danger just time for a new set of struts pep boys or sears NO Dealer$hits unless your filthy rich ...:)
