Front suspension makes a kind of "loose lumber" sound. In other cars I have had this indicated sway bar bushings. What do you think?

Never heard a sound described that way before, but as a general rule, worn anti-sway bar links will be heard the easiest at low speeds such as when going through a parking lot, and will become quiet when turning slightly either way. If the noise stops when you apply light pressure to the brake pedal, suspect loose brake pads.

Noises can be serious so an inspection at a tire and alignment shop is in order if you don't find the cause. They'll check the ball joints, tie rod ends, struts, and control arm bushings, and they'll look for signs of alignment-related problems by reading the tire wear patterns.
