Front end crunch and clunk noise

So I got a 2000 laredo 6 cyl. and have this noise in the front end. If i slowly go over a dip or bump on the road. I hear a sort of crunching or rubber on rubber sound from passenger side. If I go faster over those dips and bumps it makes a hard clunk on the drivers side. Put new shocks in last week but no fix.Its had tie rod ends replaced,drag link adjustings, drag link tie rod ends, and new left outer cv axel. All bushings look tight visually. Jacked it up on frame and body to try and move suspension around and no play to be seen. Jumped up and down on front end and can't match that noise. Any one help me out here? May replace coils next.

Well I replaced the front shocks and the noise is still there. Replace the rear as well cuz it had a clunking noise too, but the new shocks fixed that>

My track bar bushing seems to be squeaking when i went over bumps b/c it was cold.

Try tightening your Sway Bar Endlinks. Thats what happened with mine after some minor offroad.
