This RAV4 makes a faint clunking noise sometimes when driving over bumps - especially seems like the right front wheel and for sure more clunking when driving over bumps with just the right-side tires. The windows being open does not seem to make the noise more audible. All lug nuts were secure when checked.

It was transported on U-Haul auto transport recently so perhaps some issue from that (i.e. how it's anchored by the straps on the front wheels and/or the two backup chains underneath on front and rear). This transport type is all four wheels off the ground.

Also it recently shut off while driving (has never happened before), though was able to start up again right afterwards - unclear if related to the clunking but happened when the clunking was the most pronounced it had been.
