So yesterday I put on my Salt Pegs (they're metal), the back one doesn't make a noise when I drop it but if I land on the ground front wheel first my front wheel makes a clunk noise as if something has snapped or something.

This didn't happen when I didn't have my pegs on.

Other info : The bolts are tight and I'm running my front washer.

Take the peg back off and see if it still makes the noise. Something might have happened during or right before installment.

Hmm. Weird. You have the washer on the INSIDE of your peg, right?

make sure wheel nuts/bolts are tight
make sure the lock nuts that hold the bearing in are set up right
make sure headset is set up right
make sure nothing was drop inside the handlebars or forks
make sure the brake levers are tight.
not many places the noise can be coming from up front.
