Lexus RX300 Front Suspension Noise Due to Failed Support Bushing
The front suspension might make noise when going over bumps or rough roads. The support bushing for the suspension commonly needs to be replaced to correct this concern.

Started as a barely noticeable "clunk" coming from driver's side tire area whenever hitting a bump in the road. It's been a month since I noticed it and it's become a consistent rattle on all but newly paved roads. Easily diagnosed by pushing down on top of strut mount, aforementioned metal to metal "clunk" is produced. - Visitor
