Question Honda pilot suspension noise?

Okay so my dad dd is a 2003 honda pilot.

Prob #1
There is a suspension thud when you go over bumbs. (theres lots where I live) Sounds like front end and We knew the struts were shot because they were leaking and have 110k on them and the struts they used in the honda pilots had alot of probs with early failers. So I put in two new struts in the front. 1 upper mount was reused because it was in really good condition. The other had to be replaced because it had seized to the strut piston and was destroyed when removing it. The front also got 2 new sway bar end links. It then was alligned the next day. For the back while we were at it we put 2 new shocks back there. This was about a month ago it really improved the ride and quited down the thud a little but it's still there. So today I lifted up each wheel and checked for bad ball joints,tie rod ends and wheel bearings and there was no play in any of them. Crawled under it and looked for and loose stuff also looked at all the bushings. Tomarrow I'm going to check the motor mounts, Thats all I can think of any ideas?

Prob #2

The tranny in thi car the same as the ridge line and odessy is a big pos. This car is always very well maintained and a few years ago When there was a recall on the tranny where they would eather replace the tranny or if it wasn't ruined yet install a oil jet. So he got the oil jet. Like a year ago it started to shutter at like 30mph. Dealer always says it isn't there but it there for shure..

common thud in front is sway bar frame bushings. you replaced links, thats good, they go bad a lot. but check the bushings that hold it to the frame. cant always see if they're noisey. we put it on a drive on lift at the shop and have a guy bounce on the front like a trampoline.

since you probably can't do that, might wanna replace them. they're cheap, and fairly easy to do.

I could bring it to school and throw it on the lift but would rather not. I did take a look at those bushings and they seemed ok but I may give that a shot.
