Any ideas to help me with front strut mount noise?

These are Tarett monoballs (sphericals) on top of Ohlin struts..........and we get a clicking-chatter from the mounts even when rolling the car at .5 MPH across the smooth shop floor.
You may ask.....how is it that we think the noise is coming from the mounts?......well, we have a helpful volunteer hop in the trunk and we roll em around the shop. Putting an ear to the mount area seems to be the ticket.

The Taretts are not that old......the problem existed when they were new. I'm not going back to OE mounts and would really like to find a solution to this pesky problem....cause it's driving me NUTS .

Anyone else w/bad experience w/Taretts?.....or with good experience w/other solid mounts?
Ideas welcome and appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I had Tarett`s too - always some kind of trouble with them. Switched to Elephant Racing - Everything has been peachy ever since - and much more adjustability.

Running Elephant strut mounts as well, no problems at all.

Yes - Elephant Camber plates.I talked to Tarett when I first bought their camber plates because there was play where there shouldn't be. They agreed there was an issue that would be fixed soon. I fixed it myself by modding their product. They never contacted me once the fix was implemented - if it ever was. They never were 100%.
