Hi. I have a strange noise coming from my front suspension area. It kinda sounds like a dull rattle. Almost like a loose shock is movin around inside the shock. I.ve gone under there and gave everything i could find a good tap but nothing budges. It only happens while driving in a straight line. And ive noticed that when i set out on a 30 mile non-stop drive it doesnt happen initially, I have to drive it about 70mph for a few miles, then when i slow down to 45 it sound pretty bad, and thats really the only time i hear is (or notice).

Well thanks in advance for any advice guys.:D

Get some sockets and wrenches out and tighten everything - all rod ends, trackbar, swaybar links, everything. Sometimes things are loose enough to rattle, but not loose enough to be noticeable by eye or even my hand.

Check to make sure your lug nuts are properly torqued, a loose rim will "rattle", and will get progressively worse with time unless you tighten them.
