New Moog Problem Solver and Still a Litte Clunking

Ok so my gf was complaining of some clunking noise coming from front end of the car i did some research on here and heard the Moog problem solver control arm should fix the problem so i replace both driver and passenger side and replace the two front struts i notice it sounds some what better but there still something clunking around the driver side?

Sway bar bushings can make clunking noises along with end links.

Grab the end links and pull up and down. Any play and they need replacing.

the end links didn't move but when i wiggle the sway bar/stablizer bar whatever you wanto to call it the driver side was tight didn't nudge a bit but the passenger side move a bit just enough where i can wiggle it and it make a slight clunking noise so i'll order some sway bar bushing replace both side

There are different size sway bar bushings depending on the trim level. I always just bought my bushings from napa. Just get the smallest ones.
