Default Front end rattle

Got new tires at discount tire last summer and took it in to have the tires rotated. After the tire rotation I had a new rattle with every little bump I hit. Took it back to Discount 2 separate times because it was very loud and annoying and they couldn't figure out what it was.

They couldn't figure it out the second time but whatever they did made it 50% better. I figured when they put it up on the lift something came loose but I have no idea what.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Ball joints maybe? If I can remember correctly, I took mine into the dealership for a recall back in 2010 or early 2011 for a recall on the ball joints. I remember the front end making that rattle/clunking noise when I drove on bumpy roads or railroad tracks. It went away after they did the ball joint repairs from the recall notice. Hope you figure it out, I hate rattles and noises in my vehicles!

Mine actually just started as well about a week ago, at first i thought it was just me but now the rattle noise got louder. its almost like a hollow rattle hitting when hitting bumps.

im going to throw it on the lift today and see whats going on.

Any luck? I took mine in to the dealer and they said they couldn't 'replicate' the sound, even though I could hear it as soon as I drove out of the dealership.

I guess I'm going to have to live with it since no one seems to know what it is or where it comes from. I just hate it because it doesn't sound smooth anymore.

It seems like throwing it on the lift was the original problem.

Let me know if you figure anything out.

My 2012 is making front end noise as well.. It's my factory front struts I had them replaced before this is the second set and now the warranty is up on them I'm gonna get the bilsteins for it.. If u can get someone to bounce the front end up and down and look at the struts or put your hand on them as someone is bouncing it an you will feel a thump in the strut..
