Question Front suspension noise/rattle over bumps passenger side

I'm having trouble with suspension noise on the passenger side going over bumps. Here is a list of what I have done so far:

Replaced front upper and dog bone mount, loosened and reset lower mounts
New wheel bearings and lower control arms (SKF and Moog) <15000 miles ago

Replacing the motor mounts made a HUGE improvement, but there is still a rattle when going over bumps. I think the strut bearing plate is causing the problem. The driver side sounds fine. Just looking to see if anyone else thinks this could be it. Is there a way to test the bearing plate in the car? I might just have to get the tools and remove it to check the brearing.

Thanks to all.

Bounce the bumper while you have the hood open, and observe the strut mount plates. When mine went bad, you could actually see the gaps change as you bounce the car.
