Make sure they check your suspension. You could damaged a tie rod or a control arm.
My old Civic right now makes what sounds like the same sound when I hit the breaks and it is because the bushing on the control arm of the right front wheel is missing.

This isn't such a bad setup if you fit a rear sway bar and high quality aftermarket struts, unless you plan on doing serious racing or something.

When driving my 98 Ford Windstar I hear a "clunk" then passenger side rear wheel will stop turning. I can place it in reverse and the wheel will turn around, once put back into drive, will hear the "clunk" again and it will not turn forward.

This board focuses more on mods, so the brake guys may not be hanging out here much. Try the Stop here! Let's talk about brakes discussion too.

Speaking of brakes, I am going to take my first road trip with my Yaris MT LB, so I thought that I would check all of my fluid levels. They were all fine, but I had to really look to find the brake fluid reservoir. Turns out it is back up under the windshield and dash in front of the steering wheel, not the easiest place to add brake fluid if needed. I guess that you would have to use a funnel with a flexible hose to add to it.

I have the 185/60x15 alloy wheels on my 2007 4 door Yaris. My question is, will one of these wheels fit into the tire well in the trunk? I would like to replace the "donut" with a full-size tire. What are my options? Thanks.

I think I'd try the Toyota Yaris Owner Reports discussion; I bet more owners will see your tire question over there.
