Mystery front end creaking sound with video

Ever since the air temperature has cooled down I get this weird clunk or creaking sound when I first start driving. I hear it on flat roads but also when I go over small bumps and it goes away after things heat up or on warmer days. I know it is not the sway bar end links since the sound is there with the sway bar removed and I recently installed adjustable links (after the problem started). I have KW V1's installed, everything else is stock in the suspension department. I have checked each bolt in the front end at least three times and none of the ball joint boots seem damaged or loose.

Here is a video of the noise when I pull up and down on the left fender:

Any ideas? I have spent way too many hours trying to track this down.
