Gitting a weird clunk

It only happens when the left side is decompressing... Like dropping down off s curb.
It's louder in the cab then it is on camera.
Might be something non suspension related.
I thought it could be away bar at first, it only seems to happen when the passenger side decompress by it self.
Dont seem to notice it when both sides drop off a curb

Clunk is at 24 second mark

Do you have any d rings or winch hook on the front?
 
I do have a winch, but the clunk was happening before I put the hook on.
I secured everything winch related in the trouble shooting process.
I was hoping it was that!

Okay, just checking. I had an annoying clunk and it turned out to be my winch hook lol
 
I think it might be the steering coolant lines hitting the sway bar or the unbolted coolant mount that got moved for the bumper.

You had to relocate your lines for the war fab bumper too?

Going by sound that is what it seems like. (Body mount)
It's way louder in the cab then it is on the gopro.
It sounds like something banging on the body.
I think it's just amplified by the new stiff suspension, not a noise from the suspension.
@Bird dog
 
You can see the body slap the fame mount on bumps and any double momentum shift.
You think it needs tightened it replaced? It's only got 7500 miles on it.
Watched the video a little closer.
Yep, you can see so much movement there.
What a handy little contraption a GoPro is.
@Mr. Nobody
Didn't you just replace some body mounts?
 
was that the final consensus? i am getting a similar clunk on the drivers side, usually going into a left turn while braking, or when the front end comes back up afterwards. this seems more suspension related because sometimes i can feel it in the steering wheel. i've lived with it for a while because i thought it was my D rings flopping around, but i removed them and turned the radio down. there's definitely something going on up there.
