2000 Ford Ranger Question: clunking noise in front end when going over bumps

Clunking noise, but no thumping or growling. Heard most often when going over a bump or leaving/entering a driveway. not more noticable when turning. Have replaced sway bar links and shocks, but clunking noise still happening. thanks -

Could be the control arm bushings or ball joint is bad, need to have a tech check these -

Ding ding ding, we have a winner... Upper ball joint, left side. 74 dollar part, caused lots of worry. thanks! -
