2005 300C. Front end clunking over low speed bumps. Same right and left. Replaced virtually everything no change. Wondering about strut bearings? Tension struts done, upper control and ball joints. Lower ball joint. Lower control arm. New struts. Driving me crazy!! Help???

A very very common problem on the 300's are the inner and outter tie rod ends. You will need to place the vehicle on a rack and check and make sure there is no play in the outter or inner tie rod ends. If there is they will need to be replaced accordingly. Also sway bar bushings are a common problem as well. To check this just disconnect both sway bar links from the front sway bar and drive it to see if the noise is gone. If it is you will need to replace the sway bar bushings
Even if everything seems tight with no play? Tie rod ends new as well. What about the strut bushings? Are they a usual issue with this vehicle?
I have never replaced the upper struts bearings on a 300. Were just the outter tie rods replaced or were the inners replaced as well? If not they most likely will need to be. Also like i said sway bar bushings are another problem i have seen cause low speed noise over bumps
