96 C280 clunk when braking in reverse

Hi Group,

When the 96 C280 is backing up and the the brakes are applied there is a loud clunk that appears to come from the front passenger side suspension. The problem is worse on a hill when backing up and applying the brakes. This does not happen when braking when going forward. Front lower ball joints, and new rotors, brake pads have been installed on all wheels. I cannot see movement that relates to the clunk and the wheel does not have excessive play.

Many thanks
