So yesterday I did a more thorough inspection. Everything was as it should be, to the best of my knowledge, other than the mechanic not flipping the slightly mushroomed original spring washers. So, I flipped the washers on both sides and drove around the rest of the day, including another hard drive through the hills. No clunking at all...

...but it wasn't going to be that easy. Today as I was coming home from a trip to the grocery this evening, it started again. Just like last time, the rhythmic clunking started out mild and gradually became louder, especially during acceleration/deceleration.

I'm thinking tomorrow I'll get under there again tomorrow and squirt some grease into the boots under the clamps and see how that goes.
