Clunk from right rear, have vid.. ideas?

Hey all,

Hope everyone had a safe and fun Christmas and New years.

My Sig has been giving an intermittent clunk/thud from the right rear for the past month or two. It is not regularly reproducible, but most often occurs after car has been parked, once car is moving thud may occur anywhere from 5 sec to 60 seconds after starts moving.. occurs more often with right turn, but happens <20% of the time (but still happening 5-15x per day).

I was able to take a vid from inside. Hope to get one outside posted soon.

Noise is at 3 second mark

Is it my suspension link? Tie rod? Sway bar? Bushing?

I know I need to get it looked at. Thanks for input!

Have a great New Year!
