There are many bushings that can become noisy (even engine and transmission mounts) Original struts/shocks usually only go about 50k or so before they start to wear out. As it takes some looking,
in order to determine exactly what and where a problem like yours is I recommend that you have a good tech at a shop with a good reputation have a look at it. Then, If it's something you want to do yourself, that's your option. You can take a look underneath and check for obvious loose components but saying your suspension has failed is way too broad of a term. It could be something small or a few items that are worn, or it could be something larger in scope like strut bearings etc...But, from here I won't even try to guess!!!

Montero rear right side grinding noise.checked the brake pads,brake shoes,drive shaft,shocker,suspension arms,brake discs,caliper and caliper pins.found ok,but still grinding noise on rough road

This is one of them questions and need i say more ,as without looking myself and having a drive then i could tell you straight away iam sure ,because without hearing the noise i cannot even summise where or what it is because a grinding noise is -well -difficult to denominate exacty what one defines as a grinding noise ,myself i would define it as a rythmic noise with the road speed but someone else would call it that noise for a trailing arm bush loose or worn but one thing to check is are the pads hitting a part of the brake disk thats corroded like on the edge of the brake disk ,sorry to be absolutely no help at all but i hope you appreciate how difficult it is to diagnose something with hearing it and from afar ,but if you only hear the noise when on a rough road could it be the tyres like a deformed tyre or them town and country tyres with big chunky treads .

Sound left forward when crossing any ditches

Your front struts or strut is more than likely not working properly. They "bottom out" on rough roads, but can not hear them on smooth roads. I suggest taking the passat into a mechanic and have him check underneath. You can also do the "bounce" test. Have someone bounce up and down on the front while you sit in the drivers seat.

You should hear the same sound. The vw should also bounce up more than once before settling down.

Good luck

Terrible rear end rattle

It's probably the rear sway bar links. If you can jack your car up and check right behind both rear wheels you will be abale to see the sway bar which is connected to short links about 5in long with ball joints.

If either of them are broken or not connected anymore it can cause some pretty loud noises when you ride on rough roads or hit bumps. They run about $35 per link so it's not a very expensive repair.
