We're the struts replaced or just the front stabilizer end links?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Just the front stabiliser rods
Expert:  Tom replied 5 years ago.
Ok if the noise is still there it would be one of two common issues. The struts themselves are bad or a cracked strut spring. The other issue would be a worn front lower ball joint. These are what need to be checked next for this issue. Hoped this helped . Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated. If you need any further assistance please let me know.

Have checked lower ball joint no sign of play
Strut and spring ok

There will not always be play in the ball joint when it makes the noise .If the noise was gone when replacing the stabilizer end links then either they became loose or the front stabilizer bar bushing is bad . Also check the front cv joint and nut to make sure it's tight . These need to be checked next . Hoped this helped . Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated .
