suspension noise Sign In

In my 2001 Toyota Echo I have a noise in my suspension but I don't know where it is coming from. I made a video of me pushing down on the hood to produce the noise. I notice it when i turn the wheel at low speed, or even just driving at low speed. There is enough power steering fluid. The sound is a groaning, kind of like a rusty hinge.

The video didn't help much - sorry. Anything making noise from just pushing down on hood would likely have to do with struts and anything about them. If sudden and both that's a bit unusual but so be it.

If you even thought PS fluid was it you really need this checked by a tech for real diagnosis in person and soon as it could be a real safety issue,
