Clunk/thud noise from front end

I've been noticing a clunking or thud noise coming from the right front, also when I go over speed bumps there's a "squeaking" noise that comes from both front corners. Any ideas?

How many miles on your vehicle?

Sounds like suspension and the bad reactions from going over speed bumps is almost surely bad shocks. But, squeaks as you go over speed bumps could be a bad joint or bushing in the suspension, which would make the clunks/thuds. Sway bar bushings wear out as well, they will make a noticeable clunk as the vehicle sways one direction to the other, i.e. the bar shifts within the bushings and clunks when its stopped.

I'd start with Checking ball joints, replace sway bar bushings and end links.

Worn out sway bar bushings squeak, and if there is enough movement the sway bar can clunk against the frame.
