Maybe a strut going? I have that on the drivers side and it makes strange noises.

Randy and Ron couldn't believe their eyes when I popped the hood, grabbed my watch and put it back on one day. This was the second time Randy witnessed that trick.

If the problem is new, I'd look for something that fell in there.

Default rattle..

I dont think its my tools from the last project, I think its the handful of nuts left over from the last project. Never fails, do a job, always wind up with a bunch of stuff left over.

Strut bearing or mount, or the strut itself. I would also check the sway bar end links. As the sway bar end links age then tend to make noise as the rubber bushing dry out over time.
