Ok, finally had time to take a look at things today.
I started by taking both front wheels off with the front end on jack stands, then had my wife put it in drive and accelerate/brake.....the clunking noise could not be reproduced.
Then I took apart the right front brake assembly.....rotor looked good, dust shield was not bent.
Poked, prodded, and pryed all the suspension components on the right front....nothing..... ball joint, control arm bushings, stabilizer bar links, strut/spring all ok.
Next I put both front wheels back on while still on jack stands and had my wife accelerate/brake again....noise was not reproduced.
Finally took it off the jack stands and gave it a drive, still the same clunking noise from right front wheel area only when braking....I think it has to have something to do with the brake assembly, just can't for the life of me figure out what. When I slowed the vehicle significantly by shifting into 2nd and low the noise was not reproduced....so I guess this rules out suspension components? The noise is only there when I activate the brakes....it seems that the harder I press the brake pedal the louder the noise is...
Thanks in advance--
