Q: Rattle driver side front when hits the slightest bump

asked by on

I have a 2005 Chevy Silverado that runs and drives smooth on nice paved roads. But when there is the slightest bump the rattle just sounds terrible. Sound is coming from under the steering wheel but the steering wheel it's self doesn't shake hardly at all. What could cause this?

My car has 190000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
