1993 CLK front end noise

Hi, I have a 1993 CLK 270cdi with 110,000 miles on the clock.

It has developed a quite loud rattling noise from the front when you go over slightly bumpy roads (e.g. the extra grip tarmac coming up to traffic lights or over potholes) at low speeds. It sounded like the front wheels are rattling or not settling correctly in the suspension arms but I have had the arms replaced and the noise is still there.

I still think it is coming from the front wheels... but maybe it isn’t?

Has anyone any ideas please or had the same problem?

Many thanks
