Default bad noise coming from front end of my civic?

'09 honda civic, with 30,000 miles on it and when I drove it today I noticed a loud grinding/clunking sound coming from the front tire area on the drivers side.

Any clue as to what it could be would be very helpful. Thank you!

I am taking my car into the shop tomorrow but would like an idea going in there.

have you hit any potholes or bad bumps/things in road hard recently? if so i would assume a bent strut or bad c/v joint maybe a bent rim if you havent hit anything then i would start with a bad/flat tire then move into the rest of suspension one easy check is go look at the side it was coming from if you see the tube running up the wheel well behind tire check it for leaks and bends/cracks that maybe part of it another easy check is to look at the cv boots, if you open hood and look down near the wheels you will see round rubber boots that look like accordians if they look wet, torn or broken in any way i would suggest that that is the issue if its only when your stopping you may need brakes but this is only an assessment from your words online without having seen/test driven the car i cant know for sure
