2005 325i - Clunking Noise

My bimmer has right under 100k miles. I just replaced both control arms, ball joints, and bushings and had my vehicle aligned. Shortly after I am now hearing a clunking noise while driving the vehicle which occurs primarily while braking hard. It also happens while turning. Not a repeated clunk like a CV joint but more of a single "POP!". I know that I still have the factory struts and engine mounts but these items appear to be fine from close inspection. Does anyone have any suggestions on what this may be?

I have already taken the vehicle into the shop that performed the alignment and they said the alignment is fine...when asking them about the noise they suggested it may be the engine mount (but I can't see the engine mount being loose at all). Any input would be greatly appreciated thanks!
