There is a intermit rattle sound coming from the right front wheel at low speeds

Like a intermittant rattle sound coming from the right front wheel at low speeds over bumps. Repair shop says it could be the struts but wasn't sure. $550 would be a lot of money to spend if they are not sure it will fix the problem. I know its not a lot to go on but any ideas would be welcome.

first step is go to a shop that is sure of it's answers' then I'd do some of my own diagnostics.. drive it ....straight....on smooth road......then sharp left and right turns again on smooth road. observe... is it a metallic 'ringy' sound? How else can you duplicate the sound.sway bar links aren't as profitable as struts and an un-educated consumer is their best customer LET ME know if I'm way off-base!
