It could be many things, unfortunately and without hearing the noise first hand or being able to do some basic diagnostic tests or be able to drive the car, its hard to say what the source of the noise may be. Have they checked the top strut mounts, sway bar links, maybe rotate the tires see if its tire/rim orientated? Seeing as the noise started after strut replacement perhaps start there first. We have microphones we put on several suspension components drive the car , rotate a dial on the tool and listen through a head set to see where the noise is coming from.
