2006 quad cab noise under pass side getting worse
 
I've been having this problem for a couple years now, I've checked everything under the truck but cant pinpoint the sound, It sounds like the body is loose from the frame, I'm sure it isn't (just a description of the sound ) It at first only happened when there was a passenger in the pass side and you hit bumps, now its constant and even worse when you hit bumps the truck has 102,000 miles and started approx when it had 90,000 mi. I just changed the stabilizer bushings which were pretty worn, but the stabilizer links are tight. Any ideas would be helpful Thanks Kevin:4-dontknow:

You could possibly check the body mounts. Sometimes the bolts will be tight but the rubber can degrade and loosen it's "grip" in the body. As a matter of fact, Chevy even has a TSB on the body mounts on Silverados/Sierras Making the same noise, their solution is to install a shim kit.........My advice would be to actually replace any failing mount instead of taking this slightly cheaper route. Of course step one would be to put a socket on the bolts, if loose tighten them and go drive it, hopefully this helps. BTW, the spec for the body to frame bolts is 60 ft-lbs.
