Have you jacked it up and checked all of the front suspension?? Could be caliper related either, loose or that

must check that out alright. Would it be obvious if it was loose?

Depends how loose. I remember i had a loose calliper sliding pin, kept getting a real annoying rattle on bumps, easiest way i found it was to basically thump the tire wall and with that it made the pin rattle. You could try that but better off to jack it up, remove the wheel and check everything to see if anything is loose, even tapping gently with the handle of a hammer on all suspension pieces, just listening for a noise that doesn't sound right
