I have replaced ball joints because I thought they were worn, they can be a bit loose and not make any niose, If you have a rattle in the front it is most likely the brake caliper slider pins or the bushes on the steering rack. The calipers have to have some clearance for heat expansion. Cleaning the pins and repacking them with heavy grease will help with rattle finding. Eric.
