When is it clunking? When you're stopping or just while you're driving? Are you sure you tightened all of the bolts all the way?

OP,

Sounds like the caliber brake is lose or something else in the suspension. You shouldn't hear any clunking, even with old brakes!

I'm pretty sure everything's tighten all the way. I think the bolts might have done build up and causing a faulty tighten

I would go through and double check all of them. Do you feel it through the brake pedal?

I would definitely pull the wheels and take another look. Something isn't tight and you should be able to find it pretty easily if it's making that much noise.

I can wiggle the caliper a little but all the bolts are tight. It's going in the shop on Monday so hopefully they'll figure it out

Maybe its the wheel bearings or a bad ball joint or lower control arm bushing.

I checked everything. Ball joints are fine there's 0 movement when i shake it in the air and the control arm bushings are fine too. I did notice that my passenger side wheel was much harder to spin than my drivers side. I'm thinking it might be locked up

Quite possible i would check both wheel bearing or caliper. Gravity bleed the passenger side to see if it releases and if it spins freely if it does then that caliper is locked up
