Not sure where it is coming from exactly. I did jack up he car and all the joints looked fine to me. Only issue I saw was cracked open boots where the that small straight bar comes down from the sway bar. At 95,000 miles. VCM is disabled. 2012

Most likely struts. But inspect all your bushings for any that have torn through.

The sway bar links are a good place to start. Remove them and see if the noise goes away.

And, if it's similar to first generation Pilots, the noise you describe is front sway bar bushings, but you can't really eyeball they're out of round on the inside until they're replaced. Inexpensive parts, though.

Thanks guys. This problem was fixed by replacing the front sway bar links. Took about 30 minutes.
