RATTLE IN FRONT END

2001 Ford Focus • 150,000 miles

I just bought this car and the front end rattles sounds like the bottom is going to fall out from under it. When driving slow it even has a slight growl sound. It's not the motor, but more attached to the wheels or something.

Just my opinion, I wouldn't drive it till you get it looked at, there may be safety issues? Take it to an alignment shop, let them get underneath and look at it. Just make sure it is safe to drive.

That growling at slow speed, might be a halfshaft joint going out? I can't tell much from here? Are the tires in good shape?
