Default Clunking noise from front chassis in 91 honda accord?

I have a 91 honda accord with 198000 miles and I heard this terrible clunking noise from the front of the car, and at first instict I figured it was the ball joints, so I replaced theupper control arms, lower ball joints, and both outer tie rods...figuring this would fix the problem, the front end still clunks, what else could it be?

It could be the half shafts that go from the transaxle to the wheels. These contain CV joints that wear out. At 198,000 miles, your car sounds like a good candidate. Also, check the torsion bar that goes across the front. I've had that crack and then you hear a clunk when making turns. That should be obvious because of the physical separation. Since you already replaced some front end parts, I think you would have noticed this one, but check anyway.
