Clunk going over bumps

Every time I go over a bump, I hear a clunk in my front end, that sounds like it's coming from the left side. I haven't lifted the car up, but on the ground, the suspension seems tight (there doesn't seem to be any movement in the wheel when I grab it and try to shake it), and pushing down on that corner produces little to no bounce or movement period.

So my first guess, if my suspension is, indeed, tight, is probably something in the subframe (maybe a bushing?). The question is this: Will it eventually let go and cause a catastrophe? Or can I drive it like this for the foreseeable future? In other words, is it a danger, or an annoyance?

Thanks!

What will people think if they know that I'm a Jesus freak?
