2003 protege 5 rhythmic thumping sound

Hey there!

I've been having this issue with my protege for a few months now and haven't been able to figure out whats makes the noise. it makes a rhythmic thumping sound when driving at freeway speed and only when makes turns in either direction. I checked the tie rod ends and they were bad so i replaced them both, after replacing them I noticed that the sound stopped coming from the drivers side and now is over on the passenger side, before this noise I have replace the sway bar links, wheel bearings, lower control arms, ball joints and cv axles. all of that about 6 months before the noise started. I've had it checked and aligned after all that work. has anyone experienced this or have any suggestions as to what would make that noise?
