i get it too, c/v joint makes more of a consistent click, i would think more along the lines of ball joint issue, and of course the lower balljoint as the easier one to replace doesn't fail!

Do you hear this only with tight turns, or all turns? At low speeds, or high?

Default dull clunk...

Yup! That's the question I was asking myself for a couple of months before my ball joint failed.
