Front Suspension Noise

842 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  whynotthinkwhynot
I have a 2003 SE with 47k with original struts. I noticed a sound like rubber or plastic rubbing on something when I first pull away after the car has been sitting for awhile. For the first couple minutes I get that sound with a slight rattle as I drive. I hear nothing at speed. If I bounce the front end manually, I don't hear anything and there is still a good amount of spring resistance. The strut bolts are tight. It doesn't feel unusual when driving in terms of swaying, pulling or drifting. Do I maybe have a strut or bushing problem?
