2014 loud front suspension

Purchased a 2104 Impala with the V6. Love the styling and power of this car. But.. the front suspension is loud, it feels like I can hear every little bump. I replaced the struts and sway bar links and had everything checked out and have been told everything is normal. I just don't buy it. Anybody else noticed this?
Relpaced with Monroe sensa track..(spelling ?)

In my experience, one of the differences between a Buick and a Chevy was the amount of padding under the carpet going up the firewall. Maybe yours needs replacing? Or repositioning? Or augmenting with another layer of padding (from a carpet store)?

Also, there are sound insulating panels at the aft ends of the front fenders, behind the fender liners. Perhaps one of those is out of position, or missing. I think they block a lot of the road noise that otherwise comes into the cabin by going around the firewall.

HTH.

Update- Insulation Panels are all in tack. I have replaced the shocks, brakes, bearings & sway bar links to no avail. Any other idea's out there?
Thanks

I don't think so. They are Michelin Premier LTX with moderate tread.
