Default what does an upper strut mount failure sound like?

so i had my a-arms replaced per the tsb for snapping and popping. i track the car pretty heavily and went to an autox yesterday and they are popping again. im starting to wonder if maybe its not the a-arms failing, but perhaps a failure of the upper strut mounts that come through the shock towers. anyone have a video or know of one that shows what that sounds like?

popping or clunking over uneven bumps mine has been doing it forever and i have the arms changed and the sway bar links but ford claims that all mustangs make a "pop" im pretty sure the only fix is gt500 mounts or steeda
