Subaru Outback front end noise

I Have a 2010 subaru outback which I really like. Now I have a noise that happens when I go over rough road on the left side fron only. It makes a sound like a bushing or a something is wearing out. It does not happen on smoth road at all and only on the left side. Thanks rza3.

It sounds like maybe a strut issue.

I'm guessing you don't hear it while making turns ?

so you go over a bump and it clunks? Sway bar bushings.

Thanks.

I don't hear anything when I turn or ride freeway at speed but only when over small bumps. I suspect a bushing will have that checked.

Thanks,, rza3perry

May be quite hard to do, as you have to jam prybar between sway bar and something solid, like underbody. And then move sway bar. But I am almost positive that's it.
