Hyundai Elantra Clunk Sound? Sign In

I have a 2017 Hyundai Elantra that I bought used a year ago. 20k miles currently. It was in an accident unfortunately, I hit the side of my garage going about 5mph. No damage besides scuffs on the front. When I bought it, the Carfax said there was damage to the front as well. I took it to a dealership and they said the front bumper would have to be replaced, as well as one of the headlights(everything is still operational).
When I go over bumps, there is a very annoying clunking sound underneath the car. It sounds to me like something is loose or something. The sound only happens when the car is moving, specifically over bumps. There is no sound when standing still or revving my engine at a standstill. The sound goes away after driving for about 20 minutes. The sound is worst in the morning and after I haven't driven the car awhile.
The worst thing is, I can't reproduce the sound at the dealership because the car is already warm by the time I get there. Does anyone have any idea what it is?

That sound should be very easy for any mechanic to isolate. If it has to be cold for it to happen, then leave the car overnight.
