Hello, my name is***** noise come from front or rear of vehicle? Thanks.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I would say both front and rear. It sounds like a shock absorber is loose or something like that.

I dont notice anything wrong with the steering. It tracks fine and is responsive.
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

For problem to be in front and rear would mean you have more then 1 problem. The most common cause of rattling noise in front is worn stabilizer bushings which is about a 3 hour job shop rate and $100 for the parts so around $400 total at a shop depending on where you go. The shocks don't usually cause noise so I doubt that is it. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks
