Default Click noise upon initial braking and acceleration

I been having this issue for over 2 months now. Its one click noise upon initial braking or acceleration. It doesn't have to be hard braking or acceleration. happens in straight lines as well as corners. Sound like its coming from the Front not sure what side. Also over bumps there is a clunking noise.

I have replaced the following so far.
Front brakes
Rotors
strut mounts w/ bearings
struts
tie rods
sway bar linkages
control arms and bushing
Front alignment
Re torqued the subframe
New tires

Any Ideas will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance

Did you do all that for the sound? You need to just have someone outside listen to where it is coming from, or even have it on a lift

No all that was not for the sound thats just the recent repair I have done, so you guys have all the information.

Two things Im thinking

cv joints and axels
or
sway bar bushing

Any thoughts in thinking that might be the problem

i get that noise but i think its the rear brakes or rotors, i got them from brakeperformance.com and i didnt get the noise till a year or so after i installed them. i had the dimple rotors so i will get the oem saab rotors and pads, hopefully that will fix it. gl

Sounds like cracked spring(s) or CV axel(s).

Default Fixed!!

Turns out that the cheap sway bar linkages I got the driver side one was bad. The lower ball joint was loose and every time i accelerated and brake the body would roll and since the last past its gotten from a clicking noise to a clunking noise. Incase someone has the same problem and progressed passed the clicking.

Thanks for the replies guys much appreciated
