rattles when I go over bumps in the road, pot-holes, or sometimes when I turn. If I turn wheel back and forth while stopped or at low speeds you can hear it.

got the same problem was told mt tire rods were loose so i thought it was the cause
Worn sway bar bushings replaced and the "clunking" noise in the front end is gone. Bushings did not look severely worn but replacing them fixed the problem.

Front end rattles suspect bad sway bar bushings.

In my case the the clunking was from the sway bar bushings.
Even though they looked in perfect condition by eye....don't be fooled...change them.
It's simply and inexpensive to change.
tip: if you can easily move the sway bar after disconnection both links...then your bushings are bad.

The clunking noise described is the same in my Dodge Grand Caravan. I have not had it fixed yet.
