      you need to be more descriptive, but my first thought would be strut bearings. pretty common for them to be noisy on mk4s and they tend to need to be replaced fairly often

      front strut mounts/bearings is a possibility

      make sure the top of the front struts, under your hood are completely on right. if theyre a little loose/off itll make that clunking noise
      PM me for: coil installments and headlights.

      If you didn't replace the mounts and bearings when you put in coilovers then I'd start there.
