yup, they have strut rods, they can be a problem.. also... what happened to me w/ my '67 Falcon ( same basic chassis design ), when I got it, the suspension was 100% fine, worked fine, shocks, springs.. everything checked out fine.. but going over bumps and even just down the road, the passanger front would just clunk like it was coming apart.. I figured the shock was clunking, so I went and got a new 1. when I went to pull the bottom bolts out of the shock, the 2 rubber bushings that keep the shock stable and quiet, were missing.. I pulled the top 3 bolts out of the strut tower ( easiest way to remove the shocks ), and removed the strut, slapped the new strut in, put the bolts in w/ new bushings and put it back togther ( would be a 10 min job if it wasn't for a pressed in- spinning shock mount stud ( quality these days ), that I had to replace w/ a bolt of the correct size and hold w/ a wrench. anyway, the car now the car is clunk free.

have you checked the upper A-arm bushings? They are a PITA if they are still the stock metal on metal bushings. I replaced mine with moog rubber bushings
