Well if the struts are causing noise and you replace them with the same kind of struts then you'll get the same noise. Anyone with the D-specs have this noise? My ears must not be as sensitive as some of yours. Try driving down my dirt road every day and then you'll be able to complain about rattles and thunks!
They replaced both struts and no differance....they put the origional back in the drivers side for some reason. I even drove the car the 5th day it was there after the repacement of the struts with no differance

I have the D-Specs and they have the same noice. Mine didn't start (or at least I didn't hear it) until I put some miles on it. I had it to the dealer with the d-specs and they wouldn't look at it (said it was coming from the aftermarket struts and they couldn't do anything). I put the original struts back on, same noise. Took it to the dealer and they replace both front hubs for free. It stopped for a while, but now it's back. It's VERY annoying. I ended up putting the d-specs back on and will just live with it for now.
Like everyone else....I thought it was the a-arms, the springs, the sway bar, etc..... I didn't try taking off the swaybar though, might have to try it. The way the endlinks mount to it is very awkward. I wouldn't be surprised if it's some sort of binding in there.

All this dicussion on this noise makes me want to work on the car. Too bad it is put away for winter and it is -10c in the garage. Any way, customer relations info is in everyones owners manual. They will usually only recommend going to the dealer. Hotline is only available to registered techs for help and tsb info will be published only after some lucky tech finds the problem and writes it up. I have to agree with some of the posts it sounds just like stabalizer noise only some have removed the sway bar with no luck. I do think something is loose in mine because after it sat for a week (I took it for a drive before I parked it) the noise was gone until I shook it loose again. Maybe by spring you guys will have this figured out for me. I hate winter!!!

I've had my struts and upper strut bearings replaced and still makes the noise. I have removed the front sway bar. I'm thinking it may be the design of the struts. I'm probably going to try the new QA1 aluminum struts eventually.
