Mechanical help needed.

I have a 94 GC that is giving off alot of clattering as I drive over rough spots in the road.

The easiest way to set off the noise(s) is to drive over those small discs used in roads as lane dividers. It appeares to be coming from the left front end but when I get on the discs and depress the brakes the noise is reduced substantially. I've had the car looked at by two different quailified mechanics and everything appears normal within the brake equipment. No broken parts or springs within the hardware.

The CV joint boots have failed, and need replacing, but both mechanics said that should not cause the noise we are hearing. The shocks are original (100k) and probably need replacing. But again both said that shouldn't cause the noise.

It's curious because activating the brakes quiets things down substantially. I'm stumped as are both mechanics.

Any ideas?
