Knocking noise coming from the back of the van when driving


what seals ? do you mean wheel bearing seals ? if so this is a problem that will eventually result in bearing failure and could make wheels come off if let go to failure point ,(takes a long time)

the way you wrote this reminded me of a fellow that just got a brand new van and brought it to me in a fluster one day saying it makes horrible banging noises only when he drives it <not sitting still, I pulled it into service bay and put up on rack , when I took hubcaps off to access the wheels I nearly laughed to death !!! seems his Not so funny neighbor had added a handful of gravel to the inside of his hubcaps for a bit of fun with him !!!

Banging noise when you drive


This is a hard problem to describe, I know, and I will toss out a few possibilities. If the noise occurs when the car is accelerating, it can be motor mounts, or carriage mounts on front-wheel drive vehicles. Transmissions can bang into gear. Drive shaft u-joints can bang before they fail. C-V joints in front wheel or 4 wheel drive units can bang when worn out.

The exhaust system can break loose and bang on the frame. Brake calipers can rock in their mounts and transmit sound. Tie-rod ends can make a knocking noise on every bump you hit. There were recalls on gas tank straps for some Ford made units, so a loose gas tank can bang.

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.

Knocking noise front suspension


It very well could be a ball joint, but I would check your strut tower. When they come loose, they hit the fender where the connection is. Pop the hood, and look where the tower comes up, push down on the fender and see if it moves. That may be your problem. Hope that helps

Knocking noise on the front end


THIS COULD BE SEVERAL ITEMS. FIRST LOOK AT THE SHOCK ABSORBER. LOOK AT THE ENDS WHERE THEY ATTACH. SOMETIMES THE RUBBER BUSHINGS GET BEAT OUT AND THEN THERE IS ONLY THE MOUNTING BOLT THAT BANGS AROUND IN THE HOLE. ALSO CHECK SUSPENSION BUSHINGS FOR EXCESSIVE WEAR AT PIVOT POINTS. DON'T KNOW IF THIS WILL HELP BECAUSE OF LACK OF INFORMATION, BUT THIS IS A STARTING POINT FOR YOU. GOOD LUCK.

Knocking sound


maybe cv joints. check cv boots to see if torn or look out for grease marks in the area behind front wheel. This would be more clicking noise though and not banging.
