Need to check the entire front end at a place like Sears or your dealership to determine what parts have excessive play in them. Sears doesn't usually charge for this service, in hopes that you would have them work on the car in the future.

Sometimes, the cv joints are worn and cause a rattle or clicking on turns. Also, the bushings for the lower control arms sometimes wear out causing a rattle or other noise that can be disconcerting.

When the strut bushings were replaced, were the other parts in the front end checked out?

Good luck on this repair.

What is making a rattle noise in the front?


Check all the bushings and make sure they are not loose. General Motors bushings are prone to cracking.

Why would you waste money on springs?

They won't make a noise or ever need replacing

Find the cause of the issue that bothers you first

Tie rod end don't make noise

I would think exhaust converter shield or any part of the
exhaust system that is rusted, would vibrate

Any vacuum hoses or parking cables ,could make a noise,
if hitting the floor pan or other parts of the car

Top shock bushings that are completely gone, rattle

Top Strut Bearing Plates on top of front struts make noise

Stabilizer Bushings may need replacing

Body Mount Bushings front or rear,if that was what was
changed so far

20003 VW Passat, 1.8t. Replaced front struts, but I still have rattle on some, but not all bumps. Could this be from control arms?


Absolutely!
This rattle noise is coming from one or more bad control arms (ball joints & bushes). You should carefully check all of them, then replace bad control arm(s). The best idea is to replace all of them = front suspension control arms kit.
Good Luck!

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

2000 Lexus ES300 - 45K miles. While driving over small bumps, the right front strut and sometimes left front strut makes a rattling noise as if something is loose. I have also heard same rattling noise...


NO YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE STRUTS MOUNTS AND THE BEARINGS UNDERNEATH IT. THE STRUTS ONCE THEY GET AGE ON THEM THE RUBBER THAT QUIETS THE BUMPS WHILE U DRIVE START BREAKING A PART. SO JUST REPLACE THE STRUT MOUNTS AND BEARINGS. NOW A WAY TO CHECK THE STRUTS R TO GO EACH SIDE WHERE THE WHEEL IS AND PUT YOUR HAND ON THE FENDER OR THE TRUNK AND PUSH UP AND DOWN REALLY HARD THEN LET GO WATCH TO SEE IF THE CAR KEEP SHAKING OR STOPS. IF IT SHAKES THAT STRUT IS BAD. IF NOT THEN U R GOOD. ALSO IT GOOD TO REPLACING 2 FRONT SEPRATE OR TWO REAR NOT ONE AT A TIME DUE TO ALIGNMENT ISSUES. GOOD LUCK

2002 chrysler mini van front end noisy .when you hit a bump.what


I had the same problem with my 2002 Town and Country Limited. I took it to the mechanic and had the sway bar links and ball joints replaced and still had the same clunking noise when going over bumps at low speeds. The van sounded great on the highway, but country roads were horrible. I was about to replace the struts and pay another 700 dollars when i read somewhere that the sway bar bushings could wear and cause the noise. I took it to the mechanic and he said absolutely not it would be a waste of money. Being the stubborn guy I am, I went to NAPA and bought the two bushings for 12 dollars and replaced them myself in an hour. I took the van for a test ride and the noise is completely gone. Please ignore your mechanic and replace the bushings ASAP! Pretty cheap try even if it doesn't work.
