Probably something is loose. shock cross-bolt is my first guess.

Yeah I mean I'm sure it's something suspension related, just don't know what to check next. I've been down there about a dozen times now just for the clunk. Initial install was with a torque wrench and the subsequent times I've tried torque wrenches and an impact gun (in case my torque wrench was off and I wasn't getting it tight enough).

It takes about 20 minutes to change shocks. You can drive the car without the shocks (I mean...don't drive it far though) to see if the shocks are the source of the noise, or you can put your stockers back on.
That's what I hoped it was but still clunking even with the stock shocks.
