I have a front end rattle that I cant find. My bushes are all good and theres no steering play or anything loose in the engine bay. My shocks are pretty old but with king springs I dont get much bounce like when they f__k out. Anyone had a shock rattle?

Yeah, if you have springs that are lower than lows with standard shocks they will fail pretty quickly. My first car had ultra low springs with standard shocks, they didn't take long to start complaining.

Is it a constant rattle? Or only when moving over bumps and uneven surfaces?
