hard to say, look at the ball joins , axles and or bushings on the control arm.(look at the boots on the axles. make sure they're not broken)

96 Town car does not have front axles or boots, it's a rear drive car--- the rest of the above answer is reasonable. I have a 96 and a 99 Lincoln and both make this noise. Started when they both had less than 30,000 miles. Have looked, checked, had it in a front end alignment shop, etc etc, but can't find cure. I don't worry about it anymore.

A 2000 Commodore where the oil checks out okay at the dipstick but is dry when the oil cap of the inner housing is removed may have a faulty oil pump. This makes a clunking noise as if some cylinders have blown but may be a much simpler fix.
