Default RSX-S front end noise

Aside from creaky suspension bushings and progressively worsening squeaky
brakes, there seems to be a new front end
noise in my RSX-S. It actually sounds like it's starting to clunk a little
on the driver side front.
I have to be driving over some bumps to hear it and I just started to hear
it a few weeks ago.
Has anyone experienced something similiar?

I get a noise when I hit bumps hard and it is very cold out. I had a civic
before the rsx and it did the same thing.
On warm days I don't hear the noise.

Could you be more specific on what it sounded like? I could attribute much
of
the noise to the cold weather, but lately it's been quite mild and just
above freezing.
How do you think your front struts got worn out so quickly? I remember this
chinese
guy I was talking to last summer at the Acura lot said something about the
front struts
wearing out because they twist during travel. He was difficult to
understand, but I think
that is what he was trying to say.

Anyhow, thanks for the feedback on this. I'm going to wait until spring
when it's really
warm out to see how the car behaves.

The noise could best be described as a "clonking" <=== Big technical word.
Every little bump in the road is accompanied by a hollow thumping sound. If
you have that "hollow" kinda sound then get it back to the dealership soon.
In all honesty only one side (drivers side) needing changing but I told the
dealers that I wanted both done, The dealership for me has been great and if
it was not for them I would have ran out of patience with this car a long
time ago...!

Hollow thumping sound on the front drivers side in my case too. Up until
now I have
been attributing this to the cold and some possible ice buildup.

You would not believe how loud my brakes squeal when I first leave the
parkade at the
end of the day. It's like a high pitched squeal running through an 500w
amplifier. Seriously,
I notice people from all over looking to see what the heck that noise is.
As soon as I can
get up to speed and brake a bit harder, then it's instantly gone. The
initial drive out of the
parkade is a different story (because of the concrete acoustics)
