Clunking Sounds in the Front End?? Help

Everytime I hit a bump, I hear a thunk sound clunking sounds in the front end. Im guessing its the control arm bushings. But not sure yet. I need some answers on what to purchase. MOOG Problem Solver CABs? And maybe I need new struts, if I did are KONI or AC Delco better.

Koni's are by far better but require modification to the front stock housings and quite frankly aren't worth it unless you track or autocross the car so go with 08-10 FE5.

When it makes the care more predictable you can drive it faster easier, they are better. Now the bilsteins I would like to see a review of but they are way more expensive that Koni's
