Default Help loud clunking sound coming from front end.

I just bought a 2010 subaru wrx w/ 52000 miles with a salvage title. It was involved in a front end accident but all parts were replaced. I have a problem when pulling into steep driveways or going through really uneven roads. When my car flexes going up the driveways it makes a popping/clunking sound normally comes from the front left. Never makes the sound when going through driveways straight ot on flat roads turning only when turning up into a steep driveway. Just had a new sway bar with new bushings installed on the front. Has anyone else had this problem, or have an idea on what it could be. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You

Hey Liam, is the car lowered? Its possible the previous owner or mechanic might not have properly installed the springs on the front struts they could make sounds you're hearing !

I have a Whiteline rear sway bar and endlinks on the rear of my car and I think im hearing the same noise as you.
On a side note my buddy has a Speed3 with a Whiteline bar on the front and we both hear the same sound in similar situations.
Ive tried greasing the bushings that came with the bar(even they are the grease-less ones) with no change. Everything is where it should be and is tight. Im stumped
