Default surging when coasting

We have a 88 camry wagon - automatic.
The front end has always been kinda clunky. We replaced struts, cv
joints and had two different mechanics look at it - without ever
finding the problem.
It has been suggested that the clunkyness is not related to the
suspention, but rather the transmission.
Now it has started to 'surge' when coasting or when slowing down.
It's got 235,000 km on it and is in very good condition for a car of
that age and milage.
Does anyone know anything about the 'clunkyness' and the 'surging'?
TIA

You might look to your fuel pump and/or fuel injectors, and the fuel
filter, which should have been replaced by now.

Surging while coasting could be due to the fuel cut feature. Falling out
of gear at decceleration will cause rpm to go up. Clunks at front end
could be due to:
aftermarket warped brake pads that are too loose in the caliper slots;
worn caliper bushings;
driver side axle flange hitting the differential pinion shaft;
loose or broken center motor mount;
damaged lower conrtol arms
