Issue / Question:
There is a rattle in front end, it sounds like a loose shock or brake pad. Could it be McPherson strut’s? C.V joint’s don’t grind when you turn. The van has a little over 130000 mile’s.

Answer:
Theirs a real good chance the strut mounts are bad and insulators in the mounts are metal to metal making the noise. Normally the struts alone can not make a noise like this unless their locked up and broke the mounts.

Replacing front struts mounts parts and labor costs $394.46. Install New front loaded struts! (Comes with strut, strut mount, new coil spring and all mounting hardware) Parts and labor $804.34

Most likely the mounts alone will fix the noise, If you need struts as well the loaded ones basically replaces the entire suspension and since it even comes with springs it reestablishes ride height as well and a very good value.
