Clunking in front passenger wheel area

I have a 1998 JGC....problem is getting worse. When I am coasting slowly or just starting to accelerate the clunking is very bad. It disappears when I step on the brake. Will be replacing shocks this weekend and would like to address this problem at the same time. Any ideas?

Control arm bushings?

Maybe a loose caliper?

Loose shock?

for the control arm bushing, if you are in a parking spot or the drive way put your foot on the brake and go from drive to reverse and if its really bad you'll hear it while you are doing that. or if you go down a wash or bumpy dirt road you'll hear it knock back and forth.

Yes....front passenger. I'll check the drive to reverse when I start it (IF it starts) in the morning. I just want some ideas when I have the wheels off for the new shock installation. I'm also having the dreaded stall/not starting issue. Just going down the list when I can.
