Default Suspension noise?

2000 Saturn SL, 180,000 miles

For the last couple months I have had a strange "clicking" noise coming from the front passenger wheel well area. It occurs when moving from a stop, or when Hitting the gas semi-hard, causing the front of the car to lift slightly. The following has been changed partly to attempt to eliminate the noise and partly because they were due for replacement:

Wheel bearings
Brake pads
CV axle
Lower ball joints and control arms
Outer tie rod ends
Sway bar bushings

No noise is made when only turning the steering wheel, however the noise still occurs if one of the above mentioned actions takes place with the steering wheel turned. The best way I can describe the sound is a spring tension click. I have attached a video.

The sound can be heard at:

My research has led me to be suspect of the strut mounts/bearings but given the other repairs I have just invested in, I wanted to be sure before I continue with this shotgun approach.


any ideas would be greatly apprecoated!
