Did you break or detach a sway bar end link?

Did you tighten everything to torque spec with a calibrated torque wrench?

Best way to find out what's clunking is to jack the car up and start shaking things. Should be fairly obvious when you do that.
Everything you said makes sense except why would replacing the shocks automatically mean the rsm's are broken?
