That clunking noise can be a couple different things such as damaged calipers/ pads, damaged tie rods, damaged ball joints, etc... On one of my personal E46's I had to replace the front lower control arm bushings because they were completely destroyed. The front wheels would jerk back and forth specially while stopping and going.

Even if you don't feel much movement in the lower control arms I would still suggest you replace them with the something like the Rogue Engineering FCAB's

Once you're at it you should replace the worn out rear shock mounts:
