Mechanical clunk from left front wheel

Good evening
I own a 2017 MKC Black Label with 25 K on her.
Nice automobile.

For the last month or so, I experience a mechanical "clunk" coming from what seems like the left front wheel area when I drive over a hole in the road.
And it happens almost every time I take her out.

I know what it sounds like when a strut bottoms out and this is not THAT sound.

Has anyone else experienced such a thing ?

The steering seems tight enough and there isn't any play in the wheel.
AND, there doesn't seem to be any unusual wear on the tires.

Thanks for any replies

First thing I would check is your sway bar links

If you don't first mess up you will never learn.

I had the same suspension problem. I'm not going to type the whole thing out again... just find my old post about it.
In short: I had to get an employee to sit in the passenger seat to hear it. I did not get the noise on every pothole but it could reproduce every time if I got a pop/clunk the first time going over it. I suggest driving around your dealership and find a pothole that can induce the noise and then do a test drive for the employee. FYI: both side had the problem but rarely was there a pot whole on the left side (for me). They repaired both sides.
I think some o-ring cushion part was put in backwards or just plain defective. They replaced the whole thing. Noise was gone but at times I wonder if it is creeping back.
