Rattle from right front wheel well going over bumps

My wife's 2003 Honda CR-V makes a low pitched rattling sound front the right front wheel well when going over bumpy stretches of road. The dealer said the shims are missing from both front brakes and that is likely causing the rattle. I'm skeptical of this since the sound is only coming from the right. Even though they didn't do anything, the rattle happens much less frequently than it did before I took it in (but is definitely still there).

To my very untrained ear, it sounded like something loose in the suspension, but they didn't find any problems.

Can missing brake shims cause a rattle? Any other ideas?

Thanks.

More of a wuwuwuwuwu. Happens for only a second or two at a time.

Sorry I'm not that good with cars. What do you mean by "play in the wheels"? If there is play in the wheels, what would that indicate?

Thanks so much for your help.

jack it up, but a hand on the top and one on the bottom and shake the wheel, if its stiff and has no movement then youre good, if there is movement you need a ball joint, now do the same thing but side to side, if there is no play then youre good but if there is then youll need a tie rod

be aware,m the wuwuwuwuwuwuwwu sound can also be from un balanced tires, which would also cause vibration at certain speeds.
