Knocking noise

Postby KaTaLy5t » Tue Jul 12, 2011 3:23 pm

There's a knocking noise coming from the front passenger side of my car, only when I go over speed ramps though. Anyone have any ideas what might be the cause, worn bushes or the like? I got the 2 front ball joints done about 15 or 20k ago so I doubt it's that. Any ideas of what to check would b great.

Cheers
Ross

Could be an upper ball joint if you did the lowers could even be a top mount.

it could be the upper or lower bushes on your toms coilovers

My back ones were making a loud knocking/banging noise and new lower bushes solved that. If you've the wheel off, try shake the coilover and see if it moves at the bottom
