98 civic suspension clunking?

i got a problem, my 98 civic has been making this annoy clunking sound on my front passenger side for a month now and i just cant stand it. i had new rotors/pads, GC coils/Tokico Illumina shocks, but the shop kinda did a horrible job and i would not like to take my car back there. i took it to another shop to get checked out, they checked everything and said that it was the shocks (but they seem unsure) they said that its because theirs no bushing at the bottom of the shock and that its hitting metal to metal. But the problem is there was only bushing supplied for the upper mount, and the rest of the car is hitting metal to metal and not making the same noise. just wanna know if anyone had a problem like this, could the be improbably placed and causing this clunk, this sounds like metal to metal banging, and the side the noise is coming from doesn't take bumps as good as the drivers side. am thinking about taking it to another shop to get the passenger side reinstalled
