Default 02 Camry Front Suspension Noise

I just picked up a 2002 Camry with 137K miles and I can hear a rattling noise coming front passenger's side front suspension when tires are going over road irregularities. The car rides smooth so it doesn't seem that the struts are bad so was wondering is it a bushing or something in the front drivetrain (CV joint?). Interested enough my wife's 05 Lexus E330 with slightly less mileage makes the same noise on her driver's side.

Could be sway bar bushings or sway bar end links.

Upper strut mount.

Sealant between the chassis and upper mount has deteriorated resulting in the 3 nuts that hold the mount to the chassis are now loose.

Loose strut rod nut. This is the large nut in the center of the upper mount that holds the strut rod to the mount.
