Front sway bar end link? I had a loose fastener there and it made a loud click / pop at every bump.

Front damper mounts. Open bonnet, grab wing at the well, bounce up and down keeping your eyes on the damper mount. Check both sides.

A Strut is a damper. You only have two on the car, they are on the front.

Front Damper mount = Strut Mount. The rubber/metal part that binds the top of the Strut to the body. When the rubber rips loose. The top of the Strut is floating and will produce a clunking noise expectedly, when you hit a pot hole. You can see the rip when you bounce the car up and down.

Damper can be a Shock or a Strut but, the terms Shock and Strut are not interchangeable. A Strut is a structural part of the suspension system, a shock is not.
