    Rattling/knocking noise

    I have a 99 T/A and whenever im on a somewhat rough road i can hear a rattling noise coming from underneath the front of the car. I've had it on a lift and couldn't find anything loose. I heard that worn out shocks can do this and I know I need new ones. What should I do?

    I would put it on a lift but since you have already done that I would take it to a reputable shop just to have it diagnosed and then do the work yourself if you know how. There are a number of things that could be causing the issue but most would cause the problem all of the time (i.e. bearing or tie rod) so I think theres a good chance your guess is right since you notice it on rougher surfaces
