Default 96 front end noise

I have a 96 SE with adjustable and rear leveling suspension. I have a rattling noise coming from my front end when going over bumps. Speed and tire position don't seam to matter. I have two questions.

1. What should I check. I have visually inspected the front end and nothing sticks out.

2. If it is a strut where should I go to get another one. it seams that no one carries the adjustable one. I'm willing to forgo the adjustable struts if their is a big price difference.

The air leveling struts are only on the back of the car, so it shouldn't be an issue there.

You should probably jack up the front and check the wheels, bearings, steering. Look for anything that may be cauing the noise.
