I have a weird clunking noise in my front end when I go over the slightest bump. In the last 6 months, I’ve replaced: both hub assemblies, both outer tie rod ends, both struts, both sway bar links. The sound went away for about 2 months then came back a few days ago. Can’t tell which side it’s coming from but it feels like it’s under my drivers side foot.

At 12 years old now and unknown (to us here) mileage....Have you had the ball joints and control arm bushings inspected/replaced?

Have you tried replacing the sway bar bushings and last check the lower control arms.

It has 140800 miles on it (just added to my post). And I have not. I’m (hopefully) going to get it in today to have it inspected.

I have not. The only things that have been replaced on the sway bar are the sway bar links.

Did you check front motor mount any of them for missing rubber?

It's a lot cheaper to have a competent shop diagnose the problem than it is to replace parts at random until you find the fault.
But if you want to play this game, my bet is on lower control arm(s).

I would check the part forgive me I forgot whats called but if you take off the wheel there should be a vertical bar with a rubber cushion on top and bottom, mine wore off and when I hit a bump it kinda clunked. I think the part is only about 5-6” long but maybe you will see it loose
