Get under the truck and check. Look for anything loose.

Sounds like it could be the wheel bearings going bad. Just a thought.

your problem in the clunking is MOST likely worn sway bar links. BUT the left right movement when you jerk the tires is MOST likely tie rods outer. The movement on up down jerks could most likely be the lower ball joints. Either way your truck sounds like it needs the entire front end rebuilt.
