slight chatter/clatter noise in front end

There seems to be a slight chattering noise coming from my front when you hit bumps or washboard roads . My drivers side hub is siezed up and im thinkin they are both either shot or close to it. Do bad hubs cause that noise or what else would it be? Im gonna get some warn premiums hubs if thats what it is. Anyways anyone know what is wrong here and a price idea to fix it?? thanks

I have no help but I have what I would guess is the same problem. My hubs are fine but my front end chatters. You would swear the ball joints were bad from the noise I get but they are fine. Your ball joints OK? Hope someone can help us.

check your sway bar connections, if the bushings mounts are worn it can sound like a train wreck under there.

Is there anything else this noise could be? and Im guessing those bushings in the sway bar mounts are easy to change??
