V6 knock, issue free front suspension

I'd like to check something before investing any more money in my gtv!
Can any of you confirm it us actually possible to have knock/clunk free front suspension on a V6 - even when pushing on through bumpy b road bends?

So far replaced springs, drop links, shocks as nd tie rod ends. Garage said wishbones were ok. Totally fed up and thinking about getting new wishbones, anti roll bar (you can't just buy bushes apparently) and strut top mount in a final effort... Finding the car no fun at all tbh due to knock after knock...

Gtv V6

My V6 Spider is knock-free. Only has 85,000km on the clock though

I think you should start by replacing the wishbones. Then check the rack inner ends for play while you're there. Mine's had a new steering rack (already!) but if it's just the inner balljoint, they can be unscrewed (with a special tool) and replaced.

Which garage are you using. Try asking QSP at Ferryhill or Bonellos in Byker to have a look at it. I had a knock after wishbones were replaced that turned out to be the captive nut on the wishbone having come free - might not be spotted by a visual inspection. Could be something completely unrelated to suspension that has come loose. Exhaust? Engine mounts?
