My comment on getting a clunk when the left front wheel drops and then quickly rebounds was in reply to a question on whether it only occurred with the wheels turned. I can also get the clunk with the wheels turned when going up an incline (doesn't have to be steep) which which would also produce a combination of compression and twisting stress on some component(s) in the suspension system or on steering column. I don't get the clunk when turning on a level surface.

As you said whether all the clunks have the same root cause is uncertain, but I think it more likely than not.
