geez, I always thought an Audi front end should be dead quiet and
competely tight when it's in perfect condition.  A clunk of any kind
means something is loose somewhere.

the last year has been a process of "diminishing" the clunk on my car. 
haven't heard it all since replacing the rack, but it's only been a few
days and it had gotten quieter and a bit rarer.

similar to your description, though, at the end of a steered firm stop
or right at a steered take off.
