What could this noise be?

When im driving at regular speed over bump and other kinds of uneven road i hear somekind of rattle or something loose in the front end. I especially hear it ever morning when i drive over traintracks. I go slow and i can hear it. What could it possibly be?

I have a full eibach pro kit with sway bars and everything else under mine I had the same issue. Took it to the shop they lifted it check it out and found nothing. When I drove it home all the noises went away. Sounds like something is just out of place if you havent hit or ran over anything lately. Check to see if you have rubber stoppers betwwen the control arms and the frame. If you do make sure they are both still there.

There's a TSB for this problem. Something about the strut towers.

Front swaybar vertical links are probably loose.
