Hi if you hear the knocking noise more when you go over slightly bumpy road then the chances are the bottom ball joint needs replacing these dont cost much to buy and its best to replace both sides, you will need some special tools such as ball joint splitter and a workshop manual would be helpful if you have never done this before and you are doing the work yourself

another problem could be the anti roll bar bushes what you can do to test to see if its the bottom ball joint or not is to jack the car up so that wheel is off the floor slightly then place a stand under the car so its safe to get under then get a strong bar such as crow bar and get someone to put this under the tyre and lever it up so they are lifting the wheel up and down slightly then if you get under neath and have a look behind the wheel then the bottom ball joint is the part that fits into the bottom of the hub, now once you have found this see if their is any play when the person is lifting the wheel up and down with the bar.

if their is play then it needs replacing, it will be hard to lift the wheel up and down so you will need a strong bar to put under the tyre on the road and wiggle it up and down so it lifts the wheel slightly then have a look and listen for any play in the bottom ball joint.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

it can be related to a universal joint from the steering rod to the unit and it is possible that this has failed. Normally this is a yoke and must be replaced after the vehicle has run.;

Knoking soud frome pasenger front

Hi Buddy, Suggest:- If mine - I'd check LF wheel bearing by jacking that corner up and then, using both hands, try to move the wheel - firstly by placing your hands at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock followed by 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock. = any movement other than very minor = means the wheel bearing for that wheel needs to be replaced. A job that should NOT be delayed !!! (you surely don't want to see that wheel passing your inside on the motorway eh? .-.-.-.*--"-IDEA="--* ~ Check the other ~ 3 ~ WhEeLs ...[OOO] ... at the same TiMe !!! ... Kind Regards ~ D
