Default rumble n' rattle from the front suspension....

so...the little winding road in my complex isnt the smoothest but when driving down the road at slow speeds..15-25 the front seems to rattle n' rumble..now I already went throught the brake system and put on new pads and rotors after it sat fer' four years ..all I can think is that its the struts makin noise??? now up until this car everything I drive is big and has a V8 and has shocks ..no struts... any opinions?
thanx

I'm no expert, but I'm thinking wheel bearings. Especially if it does it more when you turn one way or the other. Struts don't really make noise, that I'm aware of. I can only think of three possibilities:

tire noise
wheel bearing
brake pad dragging on rotor (not coming back off all the way)
well, could be lugnuts too I suppose, so make it 4 possibilities.

good luck!
