My 94 Grand was experiencing this and progressively became worse. Changed fuel filter and checked fuel pressure: No difference. Had my cumputer replaced and has been fine ever since.

Ford F150 FX4 2004 Front Hub Noise

have your cv shat checked or changed, those clunking noise is a sign of "constant velocity"CV joint failure, sometimes the noise stops because it is caused by damaged bearings. you should have it checked or changed before it fails on you, once this happens you will not be able to move your vehicle unless towed.
