Arrow help me, welcome me

before my introduction, quick little questiton... when getting on the throttle and accelerating quick then getting off it, something from the front sounds like its rocking. and when going over things such as my driveway it makes somewhat the same noise. people i have asked about this ask if i hear it when braking and i think i do sometimes but it is nowhere as much as the other two examples i have given.

I have posted a few things asking for help and thoughts with my car. Never did introduce myself. I am Trenton I live in the houston area. Trying to make this halfway repainted two tone red 96 328i with 210,000 miles into a long term project. Only sixteen so pay isnt much. Thanks

Check the sway bar endlinks, they are known to make noise if not really tight.

Also, on my old 325i, I had a blown front strut that would clunk and rattle on larger bumps like the driveway and speedbumps. You can check for a blown strut by looking for oil leaking out of the seals arount piston.

Oh and welcome to the 'fest!
