I bought my Envoy Jan.19/06 and since buying the vehicle it has developed a thumping noise which sounds like it was coming from the rear. This happens when I ride over small bumps. I took it back to the dealer ( 5 times now). They have changed both the front and rear stabilizers, trimmed the rear mud flap- they said it was hitting the muffler. They have checked to make sure everything is tight under the vehicle and the ball joints are tight. They are now going to change both front shocks. Has anyone had this problem and what was the remedy?

Just a thought.  But it could actually be the spare tire thumping.  Usually this would not happen for a couple of years as the cable stretches.  However, maybe this one is just not tight enough?  Short answer, check the spare tire.  I have not heard of this specifically on the Envoy, but I have heard of it with other "under moutned" tires.

Hope that helps.  Let us know!
