clunking in front end

I have a 99 f-350 with 94000 miles on it.

When I drive under normal roadway conditions there is a clunking underneath the front of the truck, it can be felt as well as heard from both sides, passenger and driver sides.

Does this sound like I need new ball joints? blown shocks? new wheel bearings? loose shackles?

Thanks

Sorry I can't be more descriptive
