Squeak and Rattling Noise on MK3 FF

I'm trying to diagnose a squeaking noise coming from the front passenger side wheel. I heard it yesterday while driving. When I would hit a bump it would make a rattling noise similar to a couple of rocks in a metal coffee can.

This morning it made an awful squeaking noise while I was backing up. I wasn't applying the brakes when it happened.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Front Suspension

Same problem here on my '08 Focus SE. Just put it up on a lift and you'll very easily see what the problem is. I'm looking into not only fixing but upgrading some of the parts. I'm at just over 122k miles on mine now... guess it's time to replace some parts.
