Hey guys. So two days ago this clunking started happening. It's very strange. It first started happening when I would take off and would clunk every tire rotation until about 15 mph. Now that has pretty much stopped but the clunking happens almost every time the second I start to press on my brakes but does not actually happen at all when in reverse. The clunk can also be felt in the pedal.

It also occasionally happens while driving, but happens fairly frequently when hitting larger bumps. I linked a video to what it sounds like. The clunk happens at 20 sec, 24 sec, 28 sec, 30-32 sec, 45 sec and 56 sec. The clunks at 30-32 seconds were from hitting bumps, all other clunks were from touching the brake pedal.

I took a crawl underneath and found that one of the tie rod bushings has a small cut in it but I know that's not the culprit. I did notice though that the front axle is wet on both sides. Not sure if that would have anything to do with this, but I wouldn't imagine so since this seems to be (at least partially) directly related to the brakes since it happens the second I touch the brake pedal. I attached a pic of the axle too.

I also don't know if it's worth mentioning, but I did just replace all 4 rotors, pad sets and calipers because one caliper seized and another was on it's way out.

Thanks in advance guys!
