Help please. Go over bumps and "clunk" sound

Hi everyone hope your summers are going well.

I have a question that maybe some of you might be able to help me with.

When I hit a small bump or push down on the hood of my car, there is a clunk sound on my drivers side.
I just got the car back from shop and replaced the two upper ball joints, and right cv shaft. He said everything was in working condition. (this was about a week ago).

My suspension setup is:
- coilovers (lowered about 2")
-camber kit
- new shocks 2 years ago


The car doesn't appear to be too low, as there is no clunking noise on the passenger side, only the driver side.

I am puzzled. any thoughts, comments or ideas as to what this clunking noise is?

Thank you all.

I will be going back to the shop, I just thought that if I could get some feedback first, maybe I could fix it myself if it's something minor.

could be a blown shock. They do tend to ClunK if they have blown.

I am assuming you have coilover sleeves right?

If so, your shocks will take a beating and may prematurely blow.

But as Chris said, go back to your mechanic.

What kind of camber kit you running? I've seen alot of camber kits that hit the top strut tower when you go over bumps because the bolts are not pressed in. I would bet that thats your problem.
