I had the same problem and i replaced them today and the sound is gone and much smoother ride as well. The dealer did it and it cost around $100 CAD

tie rods are what the stealership says needs to be replaced. it does take away the "thunk" when its done but a simple $20 replacement of the sway bar bushings does the job. tie rods last much longer than most think.

I have replaced both struts, inner and outer tire rods, sway bar link and the sway bar bushings. I still have the clunking when I hit bumps. Feels like the wheel is going to come off. What am I missing?
