Ball joints can cause this noise. You can check them by raising wheels off of the ground and manipulating the wheel to check for movement in them. Best to have two people, one to move wheel and one to watch for play in ball joint.

struts can cause this noise after 50 - 75000 they are due to be rplaced anyway
