You won't know for sure what it is until you look.
The following things can make clunking noises...

Springs not seated on cushions or rubbing on body or worn out cushions.
Bad bushings in crossmember, a-frames, swaybars, swaybar links, shocks.
Bad stub axle u-joints or bad driveshaft u-joints.
Bad wheel bearings.
Bad differential side carrier bearings or pinion bearings.
Bad/broken brake shoe retaining springs.
Lose wheel lug nuts.
Muffler hangers.

You get the idea...
Doctor, I have a pain - what is it?
