Default Popcorn Thud Noise from Passenger Front Side

Hi all,

For a while I've been driving around with a sporadic thud noise anytime I drive above 60 mph. It sounds like it is coming from the tire well but honestly could be under the hood on that side. It isn't the sway bar or bearings, could be the strut but I don't think it is. It is not a humming sound. If I had to relate it to something it sounds like a rubber ball bouncing around in my tire well. The popcorn noise is due to the sporadic noise it's not a steady thud it's random but at the consistency of popcorn popping. I checked all the plastic trim around the tire well for looseness and possible banging and nothing. My heat guard for the exhaust was detached on one side so I fixed that and that wasn't it. I'm beyond frustrated but can't think of what else it could be. Anything could help!

its a posted in sight and sound hahahah

a front end noise issue you can hear but not see

loose wheel nuts
worn or faulty tyre/tread
leaky soft shock strut
top strut bearing and rubber retainer
loose /weak strut spring
lower ball joint
tie rod end

worn outer CV joints do pop

check lower control arm bushes

if it was growling would be wheel bearing
