Default loose sound when going over bumbs in road or over tracks

Whenever i go over some bumps in the road or over rail road tracks i hear a sound from the front of my car an sometimes in the back like something is loose under the car. I've dealt with it for about 2 months now but idk what it is my mechanics couldn't find anything wrong with it even though they heard the sound too. anyone have any ideas?

We'd all just have to guess what could be making the sound. Exhaust, sway bars, broken or loose engine mount, or any part of the suspension.

I just had my front strut blow out but I knew from the grease all over the inside of the wheel. Look for signs of scraping or banging.

Did you put it on a lift and shake everything possible that could make a sound?

Have you installed a lowering kit or new exhaust?

My PT made a clunking sound in the front when going over speedbumps or into a driveway. The Mech found a worn out ball joint. Fixed no more noise--just a though==Andy

You mentioned it made noise in the back also. Ours started making a rattle from there while bumping on rough roads. Found the sound was comming from the rack holding up the spare tire. Got the lug nut wrench out and tightened it a bit..... rattle gone.

I have already done that, made it as tight as i possibly could get it but still makes that noise.
