    New to forum everyone sorry if been posted before did look through forum though.
    I have a 2015 vf sv6 auto with 195000km

    Possible front/rear or both (suspension or driveline) knocking noise over bumps mainly at speeds over 40/50kmph,

    I did notice the spare wheel and tool holder where loose so secured and tightened them which has stopped some noise but still a annoying knocking/thud when travelling over bumps.
    Going from drive to reverse is fine with no noise, and taking off from stand still is fine as well with no noise.
    I need to get car on hoist to check everything but just wondering if anyone has had this issue and what fixed it. Thanks

    At that mileage I'd suspect worn top mounts on the McPherson struts, or possibly worn bushes in other parts of the front suspension. Other possibilities are loose exhaust mounts or knocking/rattling door strikers. Try wrapping electrical tape around the cylindrical part of the striker plates that are on the body pillars. Also check for a loose battery and other unsecured items tucked away in the boot area. Good luck!

    At those ks it's a great time to replace all the shocks (struts) plus the strut tops and sway bar bushes. The engine mounts are probably on the way out too. All those things will be contributing to the noise and it will ride like new again after you replace them.
