Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try help you with this.
Under what driving conditions do you hear this knocking?
Which is what?
going to work and driving within the speed limit.Here the knocking all the time
Is it there when going straight, accelerating, braking, turning left or right etc.
I would suggest you need new ball joints.
when the car was on the ramp there was no movement on the bottom ball joint track rod ends
That doesn't mean they cant knock.
When you replaced the top bearings, did they show movement?
Were the front shocks found to be leaking or worn?
Don,t know about top bearing but one of the shockers fell to bits when removed.could it be the anti roll bar links
It could be that also.
Normally though they only knock when cornering.
Roll bar is used when cornering.
Do you need to know anything else?
would it be the main bottom balljoint or the
Main bottom ball joint.
Thanks for the help.don,t want to keep replacing parts needlessly
If the noise happens all the time then ball joints are the most likely cause along with top bearings.
All other components usually knock when turning.
ok many thank for the advice
