weired sound when i hit a bump

There is a Weired sound coming from the front pass. side when ever i hit a bump.. The only way to explain how it sounds, is well, it sounds like there is something loose.. Metal on metal almost.. like a clinging.. But, i cant find anything loose.. cant find the culprit..
Could it be the limit straps?

wheel bearing jack up the front of that side and see if you can rock the wheel to see if its loose -- like if your sitting in front of it push and pull from the top and the bottom..if its loose then its the wheel bearing..

Not something you should worry about. Superlifts are notorious for the sway bar end links making noise. Its the piece that connects the sway bar to the lower control arm.

Here, check this out.
