Exclamation Suspension clunking.

Clunking sound mostly coming from the right side in the front. Clunking sound appears when going over or going in potholes. I noticed clunking exiting a roundabout where the surface was smooth, so it also clunks when cornering.

The car has to go through inspection in december, i want to fix it or get it fixed by then.

What should i check first?
