When I accelerate hard to about 35 mph and then abruptly let off on the accelerator, there is a hard clunk in the front left wheel area. It does it every time I try. If I accelerate hard but do not let off abruptly on the accelerator, later when I slightly brake there can be a clunk or two like I ran over a branch with my left tire.

This could be a control arm bushing wearing out, pretty common on German cars, but the best thing to do is to have a shop go on a test drive and verify this. here are some shops: https://repairpal.com/directory?address=98277&car_brand_names=Mercedes-Benz
