I have a 2008 VE SV6 Ute with 95000Kms....and for some time on uneven roads there are rattles underneath...I have checked the heat shields and front end tie rods and all seems to be in order....on smooth roads there is no noise at all....I have never had any problems with the ute being 11 years old.
DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY INFO. OR IS THIS A KNOWN FAULT WITH THIS MODEL?

I had it.
Was the exhaust bouncing on the centre cross member.
The exhaust rubber mounts had stretched over time so it was moving a lot

I just put some washers where the cross member bolts to the chassis. Just dropped it by 5mm, so the exhaust didn't touch it anymore.

What about if some of the exhaust internals are coming away.
