most likely not the strut at all, most of the time it's the strut mount or the spring seat. If it is a clattering noise at slower speeds, it is most likely the strut mount

sounds expensive to fix, what kinda price am i looking at. o another thing, i checked it out tonight, and its not making the noise anymore, its weird, u think i just got some water in there or something ? what i did yesterday was popped the hood and pushed down on the battery and i'd hear the noise, but i did it again today, and i dont hear it at all, so let me know, thanks much.

what kind of noise is it really? i had a popping noise on turns when it was humid out for a while too, it was a sway bar link bushing. Thats a really cheap fix, like $20 if you do it yourself.

I had a problem similar to yours with my 03 Malibu. Took it into the dealer. Turns out, the place I was getting the oil changed at for 2 years since I bought the car new, never greased anything. The strut mount was dry. The dealer greased it for me and it was fine after that.

alright the noise is like rubbing or something, but my ride and handleing remains perfect so i dont know, i'm getting my coolant flushed this friday so i'll have them take a look at it, hopefully it just needs to be greased, hopefully, thanks for all the feedback, i greatly appriciate it
