Shock absorber

Last week i was driving and suddenly i started to hear a weird sound coming from the right side of the car, so i took the car to the dealer and they said, the right front shock was damaged, so today they install the new shock under warranty. After that, I keep hearing a strange sound, just not that loud like before. I only hear the sound when i am driving in a street that has bumps or is not smooth. Gets me crazy!!!!

It is possible that there are some other parts that are damage? What others parts should i check??
