Nope, something is loose.

Yeah definitely go back over your work if something is "clunking." Did you only change the front bushings? They shouldn't really make much noise. I'd suspect something else is loose.

i have the elephant racing front bushings and castor blocks - they should not make any noise

that being said, i did wear one castor block out, which is a very odd thing for them

also, there were a couple that i have heard of that had the bearing seize up

none of this is more than any manufacturer, as everybody has an oddball thing happen once in a while, and of course you hear about it, but nonetheless, it is something to investigate
