Default rattling noise in front suspension

I own a Range Rover Sport-2006-I've been experiencing a rattling noise in the front suspension when I go over bumps in road at low speeds. Took the car to Hornburg Land Rover-Los Angeles, and they said to replace the front left and right lower control arms and the bushings too...Did not work...took it back and they then recommended to have the CV joints greased....Did not work...Contacted them to discuss some info I found on another Rover forum that it may be the sway bar bushings or the ball joints...and they informed me that those items would not fix the problem.....They then recomended to replace the drive shaft---Yah right!! I am done with Rip Off Hornburg. It seems the dealership is just giving me the run around at my expense... Does anyone have any suggestions?

Yeah that stealership is defiantly giving you the run around.
You cannot even grease the CV's on your truck, they are non serviceable and enclosed in a rubber boot.

The CV is inside the boot you see.
It is defiantly a suspension issue, any suspension/muffler shop can look at it for you and tell you what is wrong.

We did more sway bar bushings then anything else.

but there is something that it could be a muffler shop won't know about.

its the sway shocks. disconnect them and you may not have a problem. They are the little rear door shocks that are in the wheel well. They are about five inches long and have been known to cause issues. you can remove them if you want. they don't really cause any problems without them.
