You say rough roads make it make noise. I would say the problem is with the struts. When they move they make a crunch noise on rough roads. Try spraying with a dry silicone lub, spray all moving parts of struts. The cvc joints may be going bad, you can check yourself by grabbing axel and turning back and forth, you should not have alot of play in them, you will also hear them clunk if bad or going bad. Last thing jack up car and grab wheel from top and bottom and see if there is any movement by wiggling back and forth. If so hubs could be going bad or tie rod ends.

The car must be jacked up and supported under the frame with jack stands after this proceed to grab the wheel with one hand in the back and one hand in the front try to move the wheel back and forth on a horizontal plane like you are trying to turn the steering with the tire, wiggle it back and forth vigorously if you can have an assitant look at the outer tie rods on the inner side of the wheels from under the front of the car this will be helpful to see if there is any play or loosness (movement in the suspension rods / arms) , then do the same thing on a latitudal plane, then proceed to take a tire iron or bar an slide it under the tire lift up on the tire or have an assistant do this and observe the suspension for loosness or movement and noise. If no loosness is detected and the the noise occurs on a bumpy road and does not show up visually during the aforemention checks I described it is most likely the front strut bumpers they loosen up over time and make a banging or knocking sound as you travel over rough roads. If the noise occurs when you are turning only, the CVU joints for one side or both are worn.
