The noise seems to be coming from the front end. I'm thinking maybe the struts or some part of the front end suspension. Any recommendations or troubleshooting ideas?

When does this noise happen? if it happens when hitting bumps then it is most likely a strut mount or another bushing.

I am attaching the info about the suspension and we need to inspect number 7, 11, and 4 for worn or deteriorated rubber.

If they look worn then we need to replace them. However, can you get a recording of this noise so that we can determine if that is a common issue so we can point you in a better direction?

Here is a guide that will help but not exactly covers rattle noises:
