This has been going on for about 15K miles. It sounds like the whole front end is about to fall off!!!
rattling noise,. underneath front end .. kinda right under steering wheel.. when going over bumps.. sounds like somethings gonna fall out??
front end rattles on both sides when i hit any bump, small or large.
Passenger side has the rattle as well whenever we hit a bump of any size. I have heard it could be either the ball joint or vertical stabilizer. Not sure how to tell which one.
Sounds like the whole underneath is falling apart---Bad vibration sound!!!!!!
suspension had a little noise , is you are in front of the car in to the left of the passenger side , i think is the suspension or the bushings because is like sometime is broken or loose .
Vehicle rattles as if the entire underside is going to drop out any minute.
Took it in for an alignment and was told both front lower control arm, rear bushings were torn. I have not noticed any rattles or sqeeks. Neither one is torn all the way but almost. I was also directed to a GM service bulletin #07-03-08-004. It relates the same conditions for rattles and sqeeks. They have a new version of the bushings under part number 25823014.
Front-side rattle from the control arm, replaced at local auto shop resolved issue.
