Detail: ALL TIE RODS, BALL JOINTS AND STRUT ASSEMBLIES ARE NEW. WHEN I COATS DOWN HILL I HEAR A CLUNKING NOISE IN THE FRONT, ALSO WHILE RUNNING ON A LIGHTLY ROUGH ROAD. I FEEL IT IN THE STEERING WHEEL AND WHEN I HIT THE BRAKES HARD. THE CAR HAS 202,000 MILES ON IT AND I AM TOLD THE BODY MOUNT BUSHINGS ARE FINE.
Solution: It's possible that the bushings and or bearings need replacement. , Have your half shafts checked.

Goodluck! , A very good possibility is a bad trac bar in the front-end, also how old is the front steering damper? , may be boll joint or sway bar link . , inner joints a plunging joints have problems acceleration jolts from a dead stop... the outer rezzepa joint clicks usually when turning thats the balls falling out trunion..... not usually clunking ... possible wheel bearings they are pressed in on front wheel drives... or even a tranny mount maybe ...it almost sounds like somethings loose ...its hard to diagnos online..srry i need more info about the symptoms... , With the information given this is not a sure solution. Questions that need to be asked is when does this happen, turning at slow speedm high speed, when hitting a pot hole etc? Since you have replaced a lot of things already, assuming you have NEW good quality parts so you did not replace bad parts with new bad parts i would definitelu check the pitman arm. This runs from the stering gear to the tierod. It can give you some good clunks while steering, especially at low speed when there is a lot of resistance. Check it by having someone turning the steering wheel when watchin/feeling it. , Say thank you and take it to another shop with the work order of course. Shop rates on car lots are mental.
