Question 97 Nissan Sentra front end noise

I'm new at this so please be patient with me. My wife has a 97 sentra and when driving I can hear and feel a banging in the front end. I replaced both front struts due to a broken spring but noise is still there. Any ideas where I should start?

Banging?

I would inspect the front strut perches, lower connecting points. Sounds like the strut mounting bolts might be installed wrong.

Does it make this noises when going over bumps only? Can you push down real hard on the front end and make this noise?

I checked the struts and cannot find anything wrong. I noticed while driving it that the banging is on the drivers side and gets worse when turning right.
