Things that go bump in the night...

I think that you should turn the stereo up :)

Seriously, it could be a number of things. A description of the noise might help (although diagnosing faults by a noise description is pretty tough). Does it make a constant noise (or does it get worse when you apply the brakes, or turn left or right, or go over a bump, or...)? Is it a rattling noise, or a grinding noise, or a clunking noise? Does it change with speed?

Those answers might help. Here are some things that can cause a front end noise:

seized caliper and/or worn brake pad, grinding on the rotor.
worn out upper or lower control arm bushing
worn spring-eye bushing
broken shock
worn ball joint
worn tie rod end
worn wheel bearing (or out of adjustment)
bent rotor backing plate, grinding against the rotor
a stone caught between the backing plate and the rotor
various broken or loose suspension bolts
Loose/missing wheel studs

This could go on for a while. Let us know what you find. HTH
