Have a look at the swaybar, either the rubbers or the links. They often get a clunk from there.

whilst on topic, what would cause steering wheel to wobble above 80kmph?

My tyres?

33x15x12.5
My brand new 2010 came from the dealer with a steering wheel wobble at 80-100 km/hr.
Left front was out of balance by only 6 grams, and that was enough to cause the wobbles.
Rubber was 275 x 70 x r17

The mechanic told me to also replace the stock steering damper, recons they are way too undersized for the job......Yet to do this one......

Mine was making similar clunk, found it to be a loose sway bar

Also it could be the rear panhard, mine made a clunk when going over gutters (even really slow). Mine runs no swaybars and ended up being the bushes in the rear panhard.
