Default 2008 PT Suspension Issues

I have a 2008 Sunset Blvd with a bit over 55K on it. The front end rattle badly over bumps, and it seems to rumble/shimmy on the highway. I am hoping its not the bushings or anything.. possibly tires? i am getting really tired of Chrysler problems lol.

Does the 2008 Lifetime Warranty on drivetrain cover the suspension?

I don't think it's your suspension, but could be. I'd say more likely either bearings or tie rod ends. Just my opinion though. You can jack up the front, grab the tire and give it a good shake. If it moves, it's one or the other (and hopefully not a half-shaft!). You can look inside at the tie rod while pushing on the tire, and if you see movement, well there's your problem.
