first off there is several things that can be making the noise. The first thing to ask is does it only make the noise when the suspension is articulating up and down or when the car is roling but not over bumps. With this can you repeat the noise with the car sitting still and pushing down on the front bumper? If so, then there is only a couple of things that can cause this. A comon problem is the rubber dognut at the top of the spring is worn out causing the spring to rub on the frame. Another could be upper or lower balljoint, loose steering arm or a worn shock and depending on your suspension set up a possible worn bushing on the front stablizer bar. To check these items you will need a jack, jack stand and some wrenches as well as a tire iron. You could start by raising the side that is causing the noise and support it with the jack stand. Remove the tire and start by checking the joints by inspection. Look at all rubber joints and check for cracking. Tie rods, upper and lower ball joints, as well as the upper and lower control arms or A-arm mounts. Inspect the shock for leakage. If all seems to check out fine then see if you can move the tie rod joints by pushing them. Most tie rods will not move they can however twist back and forth. But should be tight. You can put the jack under the lower a-arm and raise the arm just before it lifts the car of the jack stand. If you have a floor jack which is ideal you can lift the car off the jack stanc a couple of inches and push down on the fender. Trying to locate the noise. If you find it is coming from the spring I can tell you how to disassemble the the front end to fix the noise. Later.
