Sharp clunk when accelerate hard to @35 mph and abruptly let off on the accelerator.

(2006 Mercedes-Benz E320 CDI)
in Oak Harbor, WA on May 15, 2011
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.
