You've described the issue with 110% accuracy. Mine has 20k miles with the identical problem. Still under warranty so they basically started throwing parts at it. Driver and passenger side end links replaced. No resolution.

Yesterday they came to the conclusion it's the sway bar bushings (which are attached to the sway bar), so basically the had to swap out the entire sway bar! Noise did not go away.

Today they ordered 2 new front struts and 2 new strut mounts; to be installed next week. I will let you guys know what the outcome is.

Re: Noisy front suspension

Finally I am done!!!

End links swapped out : noise remained.

Sway bar swapped out: noise remained

New struts and strut mounts : SUCCESS!!

Over $4,000 in warranty work to resolve the problem: priceless!

I think mine has this same issue. It is a '15 with a September '14 build date. Glad yours was resolved.

Re: Noisy front suspension

Mine always had a little clunk on rapid bumps/dips. Like a poorly leveled parking lot.

I'm lowered now, so I'm not sure it's worth swapping to get the struts replaced.
