01 v6is making loud clanking noise under passenger side.

My mustang is a standard and Ive had it for less than a year now. The previous owner didn't maintain. It as well as they should have. Well to get to the point lately my mustang has been making this annoying loud clanking noise when the front rises due to accelerartion or when it dips and comes back up. It gets worse with more people in the car. The handling in the car hasn't changed or aanything the noise is just really annoying and embarrasing and I just hope it isn't anything too serious. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions, help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

The first thing I would do is check the struts. Also front sway bar bushings. I would do a good check on the front end of the car. Jack it up and take the wheels off, look for worn or missing bushings. In my case I had a busted strut and it would freeze and pick the front end up, it was kinda cool. But it did pop and make noise.
