Bumpy suspension after sharp turn in gravel

Hello! Made a sharp turn in gravel almost pit stopped the front tires and it feels heavy there was issues when breaking after almost slipped off the breaks and while driving clunck clunck clunck! No visible signs of damage u-joints look good! Since the breaks were messed up maybe something to do with that area IDK. I could feel a veryyyy rough bumpy feeling when I tried to break! If I braked really hard it kinda went away! So maybe something just got loose IDK! Suspension looks complicated!

These two words have different meanings so it’s important to keep brake vs. break apart. Break can be a verb and a noun. As a verb, it means to shatter, to crack, to make unusable. As a noun, it means an action or action of breaking. Brake can also be used as a verb and a noun. As a verb, it means to use the brakes on a vehicle. As a noun, it refers to the mechanical device used to stop cars while moving.

Clunk;

NOUN
a heavy, dull sound such as that made by thick pieces of metal striking together.
"there was a clunk as the receiver went down"
synonyms:
bang sharp noise crack boom clang peal clap pop snap knock [more]

VERB
move with or make heavy, dull sounds.
"the machinery clunked into life"
synonyms:
jangling clanging rattling clinking jingling clunking clattering clang
