front end rattle while breaking

Hello all I have an 08 outlook xr and it has a rattle in the front end when breaking. I replaced the sway bar end links but the rattle is still there. I got under neath and can't seem to feel anything else loose. I was wondering if it could be the cv axles or tie rods that could be the problem? Any help would be great.

A common problem with these is the sway bar bushings. I suggest replacement with a urethane model for longevity, preferably one with a grease nipple to keep it from squeaking once the initial grease is worn away.

Currently: 2015 Traverse LT AWD in Blue Velvet Metallic with Black Interior & Dash. 20" wheels with Yokohama G055s. Dual Zone Air with Heated Seats. Bose Stereo (lame, will improve) with Rear Entertainment System. Aftermarket Hitch. OEM Roof Crossbars coming.
