Angry Rattling under left front wheel.

2000 SE......There was rattling coming from both the right and left wheel independently as each wheel would hit any kind of bump, then I just had brand new tires put on all the way around and the rattling stopped. I thought something they did fixed it then yesterday I hit a harder bump and now it is JUST the left driver side. It doesn't do it over small bumps like it used to anymore.......

while you are down there you might as well check you ball joints control arm bushings and tie rod ends.

Where jack the car up and shake the wheel up and down then left and right. Then take the tire off and check the sway bar bushings. Come back with results.
