If you can safely put it on ramps, that would keep weight on the front suspension, see if you can see anything? Can you move the stabilizer by hand, maybe it needs new bushings?

I would take a look at the CV Halfshaft. When the CV shaft goes the joint separates and you usually hear a thumping noise. Could very well be the problem.
