Chev Aveo 2005 front suspension noisy

Chev Aveo front suspension noisy, when driving over road speed bumps. Lately I find a knocking sound when driving on terain where the road area is uneven and the suspention needs to keep up with varying road conditions.
I have had the car at the dealers a few times and the front pendulum arms have been replaced. The 2 lower control arms has also been replaced, about 4 times allready, which seems to cure the problem for a period, about 25 000 Km, then the squeeking starts again.
I have had the car for suspension checks at experts who can find nothing wrong.
There must be a more logical explanation to the problem or way to fix the "problem"

SOURCE: I have a suspention squeek. We just changed shocks

Any rubber bushing--leaf spring ends, anti-roll bar ends, supports, and links, Inner lower front suspension arm bushings. Tie rod ends, ball joints at bottom of front struts may need grease or replacement. Auto supply houses carry rubber lubricants--don't use motor oil--WD-40 works but doesn't last long.

SOURCE: how do I know if lower control arm bushing are bad

check the rubber mounts on the bottom of the shockers first........turn wheel outward as far as it will go...grab hold of shocker at the bottom, and shake. if there is too much movement, then this is your problem

SOURCE: 1996 Chev 4x4, short cab, long box, unstable when hit bumps

sounds like aeither a shock or a stabilizer bar or tie rods you can check all of these yourself , check the shocks by pushing down on the corner of your truck three times and it should bounce no more than 3 times and stop if it seems very loose and bounces alot they are usually bad, to check the tie rods and stabilizer bar just jack up the vehicle and then secure it with a axle jack or some type of block that will kep the vehicle from falling then just reach under and try to move the stabilizer bar and tie rods by hand and see if they move easily if they move by hand they are shot but they may not move and still be bad and you would have to have them checked at a shop

Have 2008 Caren's 2.0 CRDI 72,000 miles Have developed knocking from f/o/s suspension. Have replaced ball joint on suspension arm but knocking continues with every little bump in roads.

Sounds like a strut issue. If knocks when hitting a bump. You can remove the strut. If you can close it by hand relativly easy. Strut is out

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps

See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

Saab 93 - noisy when going over bumps on the road.

Have you tried driving over a bump whilst also applying the brakes? (Right foot on gas, left gently on brake - with no one behind you!) If the noise goes away, then it could be the brake pads that are not fitted correctly. Only posting this, as this just happened to mine...the mechanic took it over bumps and noise was there. Applied brakes whilst going over bump, noise went away. Replaced badly fitted rear pads (had been bodged by another garage) and the problem was solved.
