I assumed I would be auto subscribed to my own threads. Apparently not...
E46Mango, brand new OE end links had been installed while trying to pinpoint the problem. The clunk was the same before vs after.
Last night, a new set of Lemforder control arms and bushings went on the car. The clunk went away immediately! The whole front end is now quiet as a mouse. It feels tighter too (which may be subjective). The day before, I followed the advice of balancing the wheels. That cured most of the steering wheel shimmying. With the OE control arms/bushings installed now, the shimmying is virtually gone.
My car is back ^_^ Alignment is in order tomorrow morning.
