Loud knocking noise from front near side suspencion when driving over bumps had the car looked over but nothing found (sounds like metal on metal )


It would be common for worn struts to cause this noise. Replace your struts. This will also improve handling and take away the noise.

Any bushing that is worn out could be a possibility. The other thing you have to check if the bushing moved so it's not centered anymore. I always making sure all nuts and bolts are tight. Also look for rusty areas when metal to metal rubs it take paint and or undercoating off then rust. Sometimes you can find problems with car is at normal riding height so try car ramps. Don't leave exhaust out, shake it bang on it with hand or rubber mallet. I have run into lugnuts bottoming out before they tighten wheel. I hope I given you any ideas.

It is most likely the control arm bushings. These are notorious for going out on Cobalts. I have had mine replaced twice.

The control arms on both the driver and passenger side have rubber bushings which probably deteriorated. This is causing metal to hit metal when the car goes over bumps.

The bushings themselves are relatively inexpensive; you can most likely pick them up at a dealership for under $40. The only issue is installing them. You have to use a hydraulic press to press the old bushings out and press the new bushings in. This isn't difficult, but you need the equipment.

You may have bad CV joints located just behind the brake rotors and at the end of the axles. Check for bad wheel bearings while you are there. Hope this helps!

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

NO YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE STRUTS MOUNTS AND THE BEARINGS UNDERNEATH IT. THE STRUTS ONCE THEY GET AGE ON THEM THE RUBBER THAT QUIETS THE BUMPS WHILE U DRIVE START BREAKING A PART. SO JUST REPLACE THE STRUT MOUNTS AND BEARINGS. NOW A WAY TO CHECK THE STRUTS R TO GO EACH SIDE WHERE THE WHEEL IS AND PUT YOUR HAND ON THE FENDER OR THE TRUNK AND PUSH UP AND DOWN REALLY HARD THEN LET GO WATCH TO SEE IF THE CAR KEEP SHAKING OR STOPS. IF IT SHAKES THAT STRUT IS BAD. IF NOT THEN U R GOOD. ALSO IT GOOD TO REPLACING 2 FRONT SEPRATE OR TWO REAR NOT ONE AT A TIME DUE TO ALIGNMENT ISSUES. GOOD LUCK
