Clunking randomly over bumps etc and then noticed this when I stopped. And a weird whirrring sound when turning heavily to the right. 

At first I put the clunking down to the diff that’s in the car but seemingly not! 

Not had time to properly inspect, but sounds like a ball joint, right?

I would have been inclined to think that also but I’m not too sure. It seems to clunk in a straight line too with no steering input.

Cant see a pic or video, but whirring sound on steering could be PS pump. If you have fiddled with the PS pipes and not secured them properly they make a nice metallic clunk when hitting the subframe.

I wouldn't drive it till you find the source of it. Clunks are usually serious.

Changed ball joint for good measure but didn’t really do anything. Ah well, one less out of the collection! 

Top mount & bearing will be here tomorrow. I am hopeful that you’re going to be the winner of this one @mk2

Ok, changed top mount bearing and also discovered the front bolt of the suspension arm was slightly loose contributing to the banging.

Still getting an odd noise on lots of turning to the right, suspect maybe tyre is catching on the spring as I noticed some rubber shavings on the strut and spring. The noise has only been present since I got the camber set to -1.5 deg, so ordered some 3mm spacers to move the wheels outwards slightly.
