Clunking noise going over bumps could be any of a number of things, all well documented on this forum, and all replaced by myself in an effort to silence the clunks. It could be worn lower ball joints, worn drop links, worn suspension top bearings/rubbers, worn something...
Mine, in the end, turned out to be the bushes where the track rod ends go into the steering rack, more a rattle than a clunk.
Combined with the flat tyre feeling, it sounds like it could possibly be the wishbone bushes/rubbers have failed.
More information about the symptoms, maybe?

Did you look for any protrusions/lumps on the wheel. Any damage to the steel mesh of the tyre will also cause a lumpy/flat feel to drīving

Best thing if you can is jack that side up rotate wheel to see if any bulges etc on tyre. Also see if bearing is smooth and quiet.
Then grab wheel and have a feel for play in bushes and ball joints probably need a pry bar to lever against arms to look for play. Make sure you have supported on a stand if you intend getting under to check bushes and joints.
