69k miles, has developed a metallic pop or clunk sounds like left front wheel when turning left.


Even with intact boots, the problem is still most likely in the CV joint. Another possibility is depending on the type of clunk sound, the strut mount can also cause noise upon turning.

Backing up made clunk noise and when dry sterring it makes a clunk noise when turning wheels left and right


You're probably going to need a shop to look at the front suspension.
With extra weight in the back, the front could have been up enough to cause something to come loose such as a strut mount. And that could happen just from old age without the extra weight.
If it is a strut mount you may not want to change it yourself since the strut has to be removed.
I would suggest getting a couple of estimates, or more. In most cases the shop will want to do a front end alignment too because of having to remove the strut.

Did you check your spare tire? Sometimes either it was not tightened down properly or the jack or handle works loose. Since you can't tell where the clunking sound is coming from, you need to start with the basics to zero in on the problem. You might to want to take everything out of your trunk and see if the problem goes away.

Clunking in the frount


A clunking sound in the front is very often the CV joints. This should be more obvious in a slow tight turn. If it is not the CV and is more noticeable on rough roads it could be any one if the suspension joints.

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.

Suspension noise?


If the alignment was checked then the mechanic had to shake down the front end to look for any loose parts that would effect it. Sway bar links on Mazadas commonly make noise and are not checked while doing alignment. (they do not effect tire wear) If you are handy enough to take your front wheels off you can check for play in these joints. There is a bar that runs through your car and connects to either the strut or the lower control arm. Try moving the links that connect the bar up and down to see if there is any play. Usually they loose grease and make clunking noises while force is applied. The strut mounts could also be going bad, but you would here the noise all the time.

Right front suspension loose / crashing noise


Would recommend having the front struts and strut mounts looked at, over time the struts and strut mounts wear out, causing the front supension to develop noise whe going over even the slightest of road deformities. Hope this helps

Clunk noise from front left suspension


My guess is a strut bushing/bearing, but have your front end checked out by good shop to make sure it isn't something else more dangerous.
