Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
It is most likely the control arm bushings. These are notorious for going out on Cobalts. I have had mine replaced twice.
The control arms on both the driver and passenger side have rubber bushings which probably deteriorated. This is causing metal to hit metal when the car goes over bumps.
The bushings themselves are relatively inexpensive; you can most likely pick them up at a dealership for under $40. The only issue is installing them. You have to use a hydraulic press to press the old bushings out and press the new bushings in. This isn't difficult, but you need the equipment.

LCA rear bushing let go.Mine were done twice by the dealer on extended warranty. I did the driver's side this morning in the driveway myself. $160 at PEP Boys. My symptoms were: knocking at low speeds, like in a parking lot.

If the wet marks are oil,the struts on both sides should be changed. Slide the plastic dust covers up, and look on the top of the struts,the best you can.
The bounce test will not work on struts, because of the spring rates involved.
Also,you could have worn strut bearings,on the top of them,that makes a noise and also causes alignment issues,thus tire wear.
Check out any stabilizer links etc,they may be worn but not causing a problem
