FWIW, my LGT had two reasons for these "noises," one was the common one that thunks. But there was one that SNAPPED... that one turned out to be a CV joint that had fractured half-way through. It was revealed during a 0-60 one day when it finalliy finished breaking and began flopping uselessly.
Most people probably don't break their CV joints, however,
and have noises from the suspension due to the common reasons... RUBBER SUSPENSION PARTS. Instead of spending a lifetime looking for The Culprit, people should spend a little time and money upgrading their rubber suspension components... which are many. The older the car and the more it has been used, the more the NOISE will evidence itself... because the rubber parts are degraded. You are not going to find a single culprit. ALL the rubber suspension components contribute to the issue, just some more than others.
