Wheel clunking and brake squeal

For about the last month my Chevelle is making a bad brake squealing most of the time when I come to a stop. Another noise started about the same time, which is a clunking coming from the front driver's side wheel when I hit bumps in the road. The reason I mentioned the clunking is because I think the brake squeal is related to it. I say this because the pads and rotors are only about a year old. I took the pads off and inspected them, and looked at the rotor to see if maybe a rock might have been stuck between the rotor and pad. Didn't notice anything like that and there is still quite a bit of pad left.

What might be causing this? And does anyone think the two might be related? What should I check out as far as the clunking goes?
