So the front makes the noise?Sounds like strut bushings.

Thanks for the help on this.
How difficult would it be to replace the bushings to do it myself?

You would have to remove the strut and compress the coil spring with a coil spring compressor and remove the nut so the strut mount can be changed.I would also use some silicone paste on the new strut mount. But first make sure its the strut mount also check the sway bar link.
