Hi DAVIDHAMMER,
My name is Dennis
and I'm sorry to tell you this but you should check your constant velocity universal joint in the front wheel for wear or failure. If this knocking gets severe that is more noticeable when you turn your front wheels to the far end of travel you may have an expensive problem and this is normally fixed at the dealership.
please rate the solution because i will learn from your rating. Thank you

Knocking noise


Wow this one's tough without being there...it could be either one that you mentioned, does it make the sound when driving or setting still. If it sounds like it's up high like in the dash, maybe a bearing that supports the steering column. Best thing would be to get it up on a lift and turn the steering wheel and look for the sound under the car to see where it's coming from..could be the rack teeth but most likely a bearing...good luck hunting

I have a "97 Grand


it could be the brake pads are low so the wear bar is hitting the rotor telling you it's time to replace the pads, or the power steering fluid could be low and the noise is comming from the power steering pump.

Play in steering


It could be tie rod ends or the steering box. Raise the front wheels and support the car. Grab one wheel at a time and try to twist it on its vertical axis. You should feel some play in one or both wheel. Look under the car and watch the tie rods (inner and outer) to determine which is worn. Lastly, grab the inner tie rod end and push/pull to determine if the steering box is to blame. Replace the damaged part soon. You do not want to have these parts break while you are driving.
