As title says, my 3.5 SE Maxima has been making a pretty prominent sound from the front suspension. Seems to do it more at full lock in either direction, but doesn't have to be turning. Not always consistent and hard to determine a particular side it's happening on. Also doesn't seem to be a function of speed and I already lifted it and shook the wheels to check the ball joints and wheel bearings. Strut boots are torn but the shafts are clean and doesn't look like they've been leaking. Before I go ahead and replace them as the likely culprit, is there anything else I should quickly look for?

Through some quick research I've found the Altimas of the same years have a reinforcement bar under the wiper cowl that has caused similar issues. Is this a shared component to this generation? Haven't spend that much time looking or searching the engine bay.
