Default 01 pt with bad front end rattle!

got a 01 PT with 85000 miles that has had a bad rattle that sounds like it's coming from the front left side! I replaced the struts awhile back thinking that was it ,but no dice! the car rides straight down the road so I figured it wasn't ball joints , doesn't clunk when you shift between fwd. and rev. so I ruled out CV joints! Any common issues with them ? When I was recently under the car for another issue I tried to find something loose ,but with the suspension hanging I may not have felt anything! Just looking for suggestions! Thanks in advance!

Those 2 seem most common.

do you hear or feel it every time you hit a bump or pothole?....If yes, most likely it's the sway bar bushings, have them checked and replaced both sides.
