check if everything is tight but does sound like a worn bush on one of th suspension parts

Check all your suspension mounting, steering links and wheel bearings.

If the wheel "moves" I would suggest you stop driving the car immediately until you find the cause

The wheel only moves a bit under braking and only once so when I apply brakes I hear it clunking.I was told it was my lower control arm bushes and my cv boot
