I did check the motor and transmission mounts. They are not broken. All other suspension components are within tolerance or had been previously replaced. The passenger side cv joint appears that it was not seated properly which is why it came out.
As far as the clunking noise which was not consistent, I found the clamp on the front drive shaft was loose which may have allowed grease to leak out or moisture to get in. I priced the cost of a rebuilt shaft and determined that it was outside of my budget at this time so I fillled the boot on the existing front shaft with grease and placed a new stainless screw clamp on the boot. It appears that the sllip yoke was binding causing the clunk.
