I have a 2013 SV with 113k miles. The last two weeks I have been hearing a bumping, knocking from under the front end when driving over the slightest rough or uneven road. I crawled under there this weekend and checked around from front to back and found nothing apparently loose. I did not however remove the front splash pan. Could it be my sway bar bushings worn? Just had the vehicle safety inspection done three weeks ago and it passed and they do check the front end ball joints in this state of Massachusetts so I doubt that is the problem. Thanks for any ideas/suggestions.

Thanks so much shizzy. Is it OK to drive this thing until I can find some time to look at it? I guess it really doesn't matter since I have been driving it the last two weeks and am not dead yet.

You were absolutely correct shizzy. Had it up to the dealer this past Friday. They replaced both sway bar end links. Cost me $210 parts and labor which I thought was fair. They also found my passenger side ball joint had some play in it. They said Nissan recommended replacing the entire lower control arm/ball joint as an assembly. So that job with parts, labor, and alignment cost me $595 which I thought maybe a little high...what do you think? Anyway...the front end noise(s) are gone and I can tell the steering is a lot tighter and responsive. Thanks so much!
