This noise is likely caused by swaybar end-link joints. Newer cars use solid rods with ball and socket joints, to connect the ends of the swaybar to the frame. These ball and socket joints at the end of these rods, create an amazingly noticeable and annoying noise in the car when you go over the slightest bump. There is no way to test these things unless you disconnect one end and check to see how tight the ball is in the socket just by wigging the with your hands. If they move around at all without pressure, they are no good. Go to ebay and search "bmw endlinks " for a picture.

Check sway bar. On some models as suspension sags, sway bar outer ends will contact the body, leaving a mark or dent just above the end, causing a bang over bumps. Only way to correct this is to change springs or add a spring lift.

its probably your bump stops. the vw ones are very soft. i bought ford escort (the shape after the xr3) ones and cut them a little down to fit. i think the noise is either your shock touching or the sound of the tire scraping the body of the car. hope this helps.

SOURCE: front knocking noise/rattling
could also be a bad strut bearing if it does it at a stand still or you start hearing a twang sound it's in the strut section usualy also you might want to look at your lower controll arm bushings they will wear out sometimes faster than others and other bushings also look arround heck crawl under if you can and dont be afraid to us a desk lamp for light if you need it who cares what the neighbours think they dont pay for the repairs you do
