Clunking after lift

Just recently had my 2" rough country lift, spacers and larger tires installed. Noticing a clunking from the left front wheel area. Checked everything yesterday. Can't notice any loose bolts or anything like that. Clunks over bumps and when breaking over bumps. Any ideas? I'm thinking maybe end links or sway bar bushings,

mine is doing the same... could be worn upper ball joints. I'm going to be refreshing my suspension in a few months since my wk is already over 125k miles.

Mine didnt have a lift but when we bought it, when ever we took turns or went over bumps you would hear a solid clunk... the dealership replaced the front sway-bar links and the noise is gone... just something you may want to check

I'm having a similar issue on the left side on a non-lifted suspension. Recently changed out the strut to Bilstein, LCA and end-links and sway bar bushings. My mechanic says everything is tight. The only thing that hasn't been changed is the upper shock mount and the UCA. Would like to figure it out before throwing parts at it.

Maybe the shocks are fully extending?
