I have a 99 CR-V that makes a rattle noise when it goes over a bump.
The struts appear to be ok, and there is no noticeable bounce going
over bumps. I just had the front end looked at and they replaced
several steering parts (tie rod ends and tie rod ball joints) to
tighen up the steering. But this did not change the rattle. The
noise happens during a bump, but I wouldn't say that it sounds like
the suspension moving up and down.
If it's a 'klack' that you hear it's probably the notorious stabilizer
links. Start here, and sign in and SEARCH if you want to know more:
I haven't done mine but I have the parts in hand.
