Click/rattle in front right.

I have been experiencing a rattle/click in my front right end for a few weeks now, it happens when I hit any bump, no matter the size or speed. I can make the noise happen by pushing the front right side forcibly down, and it makes a "click" (moderate tone). I popped the hood and repeated, and I couldn't see where it was clicking. And the MM was holding still, so I ruled that out. Any insights would be nice.

Perhaps some dryness in the little bearing on the top of the strut?
Or maybe you have a ball joint or tie rod that is starting to go out.

Maybe try jacking up the entire front end and wiggling things around to see if you hear anything similar.

Check the endlinks as they seem to make noise as they get old

I have the same issue for a while now. In my front right. It's so annoying. I just changed my struts and tie rod ends and its still Mali.g the noise. I think it may be the sway bar end link bc its wore out but I won't know until I change it.
