Do rule out anything with steering and front end parts that move as best you can. Some are checked with wheels hoisted by lower control arm and or by the body.

One area that can be elusive is the brake caliper or the brake pads themselves. As a test, just drag lightly on brakes while noise/rattle happens and if that makes it quit then go fully check the brakes with caliper off to inspect any and all slides, pads loose from backing plate, anti-rattle clips etc. If something found worn or bad I suggest doing the same to both sides for the fix,

T
