My car has 215000 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

Is your Tahoe 4 Wheel Drive? If so, there are front drive axles that have rubber boots that will often wear and the grease will leak out as you drive. Once the grease is gone, the joints are no longer lubricated and can make noise as they make contact. If the vehicle is not 4WD, sway bar links and worn control arms bushings are other items that may click and make noise as the suspension travels. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come out and take a closer look as your suspension noise to offer a more personal diagnosis.
