Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.
Where on the vehicle does the sound seem to come from?
Is this a single noise or a repetitive one?
Have you checked the upper and lower ball joints and the control arm bushings?
So far this sounds like a broken stabilizer bar end link.
This is my 1st answer, but does not have to be my only answer. You the website and myself expect you to have a ~~~5 STAR EXCELLENT~~~ experience with my help. Please let me know if you are pleased by selecting a star rating above or by replying and saying your pleased. Not rating or rating 1-2 stars does not benefit you nor me in any way. Follow up and reply as often and when needed, there is no extra charge to do so.
Exactly how were the ball joints checked?
The ball joints are loaded up with tension with the vehicle off the ground. That procedure will only check the wheel bearings. You must jack up the front end with the jack under the lower control arm as close to the back side of the tire as you can get it. Once the tire is 1 inch off the ground. Hold the knuckle and control arm with one hand at the upper and lower joint while trying to lift the tire up using a pry bar under the tire. You should feel NO SLACK.
