Last night I took my SS for a deive and notice that when the car goes over a little pot hole or even a road crack it make a sound like if the undercariage was loose, I don't know if is because of aftermarket shocks, lowering springs or because I'm runnig 20: wheels or something like that, I will be taking it to the muffler shop for the guy to check it and see if the pipes are loose under there, do you have any other suggestions of what could it be? please help

Two quick things to check are the front sway bar end links - make sure they are tight and not damaged. Then look at the Upper A-Arm Shaft where the alignment shims go. I have seen these come loose and fall out!
Both will create Metallic / Loose sounds when driving / braking.
