Question about Cars & Trucks
By the "right" side I'm assuming you mean the passenger's side. It's a good habit to get into to refer to the sides as passenger and driver. It leaves no grey area. Anyway, I digress. With the engine off, open the hood and see if you can turn the alternator easily about a half turn in either direction. I'm telling you this because these engines were notorious for breaking the harmonic balancer. At idle it sounds like there's something loose and rattling but, when accelerating the noise goes away.
Check it out and if it is what I said, you'll need special tools to replace it. There are other parts that should be check and replaced if necessary with this repair.

If Jay's tips don't pan out, consider having your shocks checked since these can produce a loud rattle if the seals are blown.
A preliminary check can be made using the 'bounce' test. Pressing down and letting up on a fender several times in succession until the car is bobbing good. When you let go on a downstroke, the car should come up once, settle and move no more. If it kind of fades, with several shorter bounces, the shock is bad.

could be the left fr wheel brg. but to be SURE, lift up car, spin the wheel, when you are spinning the wheel, grab the coil spring on thr strut. it should fell smooth,compare both sides, if its a wheel brg you will feel the roughness through the spring. a lot of mechanics will even replace the wrong brg, but this method nails it every time. ; )
