2018 Kia Optima - Front end issues

Front end movement & noise while going over bumps.

My crystal ball says … you should get that checked out.


My nonmechanic mind says your front struts are bad. And since they’re a wear-and-tear item it’s unlikely your warranty is much use. But you can always take it to a dealer anyway.

I second the bad sway bar links. However, there may be another underlying issue, loose tie rod ends as well possibly.
