check your brake calipers and discs.. my 93 SC did the same and it was the discs rattling around on the hub.. i had to use a sleeve on the hubs to heep them from rattling..

Front end is tired.

Sway bar endlinks, upper control arms, lower control arms, strut rod bushings, etc...... pick your problem. You must get under there and look.

for me it was the sway bar end links making the noise. Got TRW brand from advance auto parts for about 42 bucks a side quick and easy to replace.
