Have you checked your upper spring seats yet?If not open your hood and put a 13/16 wrench on the nut for the front struts if they turn easy the spring seats are bad.If they do not turn then they are good.If the feel springy but do not turn they are good.Most of the time the spring seats being bad will cause the clunking over bumps.

First and easiest thing for the rear noise make sure the spare tire and jack assy. is secured properly.You should also check the rear sway bar links they do go bad occasionaly.Could be worn struts haven't seen that very often at all.

You will have to replace the top mount.
If you have never replaced one before I would leave it to the pro's.
If you have taken one apart before then it is easy.

I think the part is like $50.00 or so.

You will only have one nut that is a 13/16 size. The other 3 that hold the strut to the car are 13mm.

But if the spring seat is good then you will have to check the sway bar links.
