YOur not supposed to, I'd say the bearing that is a part of teh front strut mount is gone. Pick up 2 new ones (strut mounts) and replace them. Fairly common on these cars.

or Maybe your spring isn't sitting properly

I've had this problem before to

Is it easy to replace or is it better for me to take it to the dealer?

I guess the spring isn't seated properly....have you recently installed aftermarket coil springs?

I have this noise. Learn to live with it lol

People have said that you need to grease the strut mounting plate (or whatever its proper name is...the base that the spring sets on). Apparently the spring turns when you turn (slightly) and the noise is from this. I believe it because the base the springs set on (for me) are worn down. I will buy new ones in a month or so though (when I get my KYBs).
