Question: Clunking sound

I had 4 new struts installed, oil change (promotion coupon deal), new tires installed and alignment done on this car during last month or so, each from a different shop/mechanic.
I recently notice hearing clunking side specially from driver's side front wheel while turning the vehicle. I referred to the mechanic who installed struts,who suggested that it might be because of age of the car. I am not sure that's the reason or something else but I never had such issue with this car before. I would appreciate if you could suggest best solution for this car.

Thanks in advance!
