2006 dodge charger front end sounds like old springy bed

2006 Dodge Charger 3.5
68,000 miles
I have done the typical oil change and brake jobs but nothing more. This past year I had a lot of front end noises going on with the car , so I took it to the dealer and a second place for opinions they told me tire rods were all bad so I got them all replaced. It cleared up about 60% off the noise. I'm still getting a clunk sound going over bumps on the right side.

I'm also having a second issue , when driving at slow speeds I can hear what sounds like a old bed springs. I only really hear it when coming to a stop it sounds like the front right side. However, sometimes it sounds like its coming from the back but not certain . Also it seems like the weather plays a part in it and I can hear it more in the morning .
I have no warranty so every time I take it to the dealer they charge me $69.99. I'm not good with cars so I apologize if I don't use the right terms.

I'm only home for a little bit before I leave back to base, so I'm trying to get this done for the wife before I leave any help would be appreciated.

may be a squeaky bushing or fitting causing mattress noise

This is happening to me also on the front right side. And also only when I go over speed bumps! What do you think is the issue?

Edit: the thread above didnt help either

Ball joints might need grease? Seeing that they're sealed though, means you need to get a grease needle, and puncture the boots to grease them.
