Default Strut Noises

I hear noises from my right rear strut over bumps at low speed. I also hear noises from the right struts (can't remember if it's the front or rear) when cornering load is to the right (it sounds like something rolling around). Is this a sign my struts are going bad? These OEM struts have around 50k miles on them. I haven't been able to check them for leaks since they have 4 months of snow and dirt on them.

Check sway bar mounts/bushes and endlinks.

50k is a little short on lifespan, by almost half... You'd have to look for perhaps leaking struts or do a bounce test.

Outside of that, bushings are the next culprit.
