Report: Front Suspension Noise Due to Failed Support Bushing
Lexus RX300 Problem
Average Mileage: 108,500 mi (73,000 mi - 170,000 mi)
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.
Suspension noise when going over bumps. Replaced struts but still a problem...appears that bushings need to be replaced.
most of the front support bushings went bad slamming metal to metal when going over bumps or rr tracks havent fixed it yet
I have had this noise occur off and on since I bought the car.
